This game is an aid to reaching consensus in groups, teams, or organizations, on the values and norms that you all consider to be important. By using and prioritizing these cards, people will not only become more aware of what they value but also get to appreciate other people's perspectives more.
The Values Game consists of 140 four-color playing cards, divided into three groups:
A value is something that you find important to aspire to, that directs your actions. Some examples are servitude, respect, and justice.
They are used to narrow down the discussion on values, to make it even more concrete. For example management, education, media, and politics.
3. Group norms
These are the rules that dictate what kind of behavior is good or bad, wished for or unwanted, allowed, or forbidden in groups and teams. For example: 'you must always speak the truth' or 'knowledge must be shared with others'. Each of these groups can be applied separately as well in combination.
We also developed 'The Values Games Manual' for professional use (trainers, coaches, managers, teachers, and consultants). This manual contains 20 different methods of play and additional theory, questions, and exercises. You can find more information on the tab 'Manual' on this page.
