My son actually hides the game under my pillow so that we can play before we go to sleep. What I personally love about it is that it promotes mindful listening skills and nurtures acceptance and understanding of others and self. Win win win!! The game is basically a deck of cards with questions and topics to talk about. Each player draws a card with a question and answers it. The other players listen without commenting. With younger kids you can read the questions for them.
The idea is to let the players talk in a safe environment without criticism or judgment. This promotes honesty when you play with a group. Sometimes you get a card that allows you to comment or ask another player a question.
However, what we like to do at home is … in addition we discuss the topic together. As a parent I learn so much about my son with this simple game. Benefits of playing the Ungame The best thing about the game is that it takes zero effort. Last night my son hid the cards in bed and when we woke up today he made us play it in bed. It was a wonderful way to connect first thing in the morning. Anton got so excited that he decided he could grow up to be an inventor.
Like the kid from Ireland who invented how to get micro plastic out of the seas , the kid who invented how to remove trash out of the seas and the girls who invented solar powered tents for the homeless in California. This time when we got out of bed we were happy and continued our lively discussion at breakfast.
Yesterday when Anton and I were both grouchy, we decided to rest and play the Ungame in bed. We kissed and hugged when we talked about things we love. After about twenty minutes we felt connected and happy.
It was amazing how playing the game changed the way we felt. Simply by paying attention to each other — truly listening and learning about each other. The first one contains more lighthearted subjects and is perfect to start with.
Why or why not? The cards are small and you can play the game pretty much anywhere … traveling, in your car, in the classroom, after dinner and so on. You can play it with groups or one-on-one. With the Ungame everyone wins. So, I just might publish my own mindfulness based deck in the future.
