Description of the tool

“Let´s Fly Together” is a boardgame aimed at promoting social inclusion. It´s target group are young people, and it´s to be played by 3, 4, 6 or 12 players, who need to play collaboratively, while completing different tasks related to social inclusion.

Players
The game is suitable for 3, 4, 6 or 12 players. It is important that all of the pieces (origami birds) are used in one game. Therefore, if there are 3 players each player must use 4 pieces each, if there are 4 players they must each use 3 pieces and so on. If there isn’t the right amount of players, they can play in pairs. Players need to choose birds of the same colour. All the pieces belonging to one player can move simultaneously. If a player lands on the same square as another, the player originally on that square must go back to the beginning.

Resources:
- The board
- Twelve pieces (origami birds), three of each different colour
- One dice
- Question Cards
- Collaboration Cards

Beginning:
Each player rolls the dice, the person with the highest number starts and then the players continue clockwise. Each player has to pick up a ‘question and answer’ Question Card (explained below) and answer a question correctly in order to start playing.

During the game:
As soon as a player has answered the initial question correctly they can roll the dice and start moving along the board.
If a player lands on a ‘Collaboration’ square they will pick up a Collaboration Card, then complete the task with the rest of the group.
If a player lands on a ‘Question’ square they will pick up and answer a Question Card.
Question cards will be one of three types:
o Question and answer
o Story-telling: you will pick up a symbolic and use it to describe a particular theme
o Problem-solving: you will read and answer questions about a story from a child who has experienced discrimination
If a player lands on a square with neither ‘Question’ nor ‘Collaboration’, they stay there.

Winning:
The players win collaboratively. The winners are the ones who manage to fill one home with pieces of three different colours. If there are more than one of the same colour in any one park, none of these players can win. You need to get the exact number to get home at the end.
