Anti Bullying Board Game / Cooperative board game

Anti Bullying Board Game
Anti Bullying Board Game



The board game shows how design is able to fuel education by developing projects that can help improve sociability and mutual acceptance among students. It's a cooperative board game created to encourage feelings of appreciation and diversity amidst people, instigating new dialogs regarding preconceived ideas and bullying. The game shows Ralph's life, a boy who develops bruises on his skin as a result of not standing up for himself or others when witnessing bullying events. The players need to rethink their preconceived ideas by drawing cards in the game and picking the correct answers in order to heal the bruises.

This solution tackles the topic of prejudice at a young age and encourages empathy. These qualities are at the core of a diverse, cooperative society.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where kids and teenagers still suffer bullying in their daily lives just for being who they are. Therefore, it’s of great importance to appreciate design projects that aim to educate and promote diversity acceptance. Thank you iF for this opportunity and the recognition.
