The nine board symbols are colorful and simple to grasp. The board is intriguing, allowing for adult memories of fun board games played in times past. Each player writes down an issue and an intention to better get understanding on that issue. It may sound a bit vague when reading the directions, but—I guarantee you, all will be revealed by the process of sending the glass movers around the board, self-reflecting on prompts given in the cards, and playfully watching one’s own or the other player’s movers get shuttled back down from near finish to another spot on the board. All sense of win-lose competition is gently set aside through the well-constructed interplay of helping self and the fellow players.
There are four sets of cards placed in each corner, and players, when directed to draw a card, need not pick from the top—another fun way to let go of “linear” playing. The four cards concern relationships, (life) tools, life path and day-to-day (suggestions for help and awareness). There is enough variety between board stops, hundreds of cards, and issues to be chosen, that a player could play with a partner one night, then the following week play with a brother or sister, or the week after that, bring the Game of Insight to a group or retreat. It seems it could be a nice complement for use also by counselors and therapists, but any teenager or adult can find plenty of fun and inner exploration on their own.
Handy sheets to fill out at the end of the game provide additional opportunities to find thematic insights by looking at patterns of cards collected. I played the Game of Insight to find some wisdom about a recent relationship event, and my game buddy intended to find awareness for increasing her prosperity. But to be honest, the game took us all over the map of fun and insightful sharing and conversation about many areas of our lives, and more discussion not directly suggested by the card prompts. In our first game, 60 minutes flew by! Finding a greater awareness of our own inner workings was the prize, as well as enjoying getting to know each other.
First of all, it's FUN. So many belly laughs last night!
Secondly, every single person around the table had several moments of "Oh wow...that's so relevant".
And at the end, when we filled out the final sheet that helps you summarize your insights, every single person (me included) was left shaking their heads. Wow. I went home with - yes - new insight.
I was given this book by Schiffer Publishing.
