    it looks very simple game indeed. In fact, I helped the relationship with my partner. One night, I came back home and finished my training. Accidentally, I played this game with those teachers. one specific question they shared is what they can do to make their own number from one point to 10. However, I got into a verbal argument with my partner. After we kept cold war for 15mins, I used the same question for myself- what I could do for our relationship.
    Thank God, I came into the room and said sorry for her no matter who was right. Finally, the problem was solved. What an amazing game!

      Oh wow, Sam, thank you for sharing. I have always understood that a lot of what I learn in and from my work can help me become a better human being, and your story is a great example of this crossover. All the best to the two of you 🙂

    Brilliant activity and quite flexible.. very useful for debriefing and getting a general sense of group. Great also as an introductory activity and a conversation starter. Possible to spilt the line in half or quarters and get groups to discuss their commonalities then begin a conversation amongst groups to see different points of view.. very useful activity
