If you do extended activity sessions, you will embed the card back answers that were used during the board game play. Some organized person needs to set up and manage meetings. Adding Follow Up sessions doubles the number of times you meet as you are alternating between board game sessions, then meeting again for Follow Up reviews and activities. While the game is meant for all ages over 14, some parents might offer prizes to be awarded to a group of young participants that complete all game and follow up sessions. Supporters might want to help defray costs for additional board game purchases. (Max is 6 players
to a board game group.)
Following the first board play session, participants will pick an Assignments activity (see that list) they will complete for the Follow Up meeting (focusing on game card challenges just played). Hopefully, participants will decide upon or be assigned different activities to make the upcoming sharing times more interesting. The leader could provide an incentive(s) to motivate follow through for that next meeting...a snack, a fun privilege, some honor, or possibly use the Certificate of Completion as a reward for the very last session (found in the Game Manual).
Leaders should make sure this Follow Up study will be a very positive experience for everyone!
a. The leader begins the Follow Up session by starting with a related warm up
scenario or personal experience.
b. Leader makes copies ahead and distributes the 7 challenges with the card
back answers played during the board game session. (These answers can be
lifted from the Share with Others booklet.)
c. Ask someone to simply read the first challenge and have another person read
the answers. (Every oral review helps.)
d. Participants then share completed assignments they had chosen to do from
the Assignments list during the prior board game session.
e. Choose partners and prepare for partner play with the leader first reminding
everyone to follow the same format of response as used with the board game:
f. Once partnered up, the leader now reads the first challenge two times, then
allows 1.30 seconds for a partner to respond.
(Encourage people not to use their answer sheets unless they have to.)
THE LEADER NEEDS TO KEEP THINGS MOVING THROUGH THESE
CHALLENGES! If time, the other partner can now practice addressing the
challenge. (The leader needs to make comment on good practices observed.)
g. Once all challenges have been given, have everyone evaluate what went well.
Any improvements? Did everyone reword, respond with questions, use eye
Be encouraging. Sometimes it only takes one good answer to meet a
challenger's need. Congratulate all efforts!!
Schedule the next board game play.
