‘Fair Go’ family board game teaches kids the importance of social responsibility.
We may live in a materialistic world, but Aussie educator Andrea Thompson has created a fun way to help the next generation understand the importance of social responsibility in the new family board game, Fair Go.
Fair Go is a unique board game where the winner is determined by who has the best reputation for philanthropy and social justice. It immerses young people in a place where winners are only rewarded for doing something great, and everyone gets a fair go.
Fair Go is designed for 2-6 players and I would recommend that kids need to be at least 8 years old to play. At this age they will be able to grasp the concept of the game a little better. Fair Go is the perfect game for Generation Z and is sure to start conversations in your house about what we can do to ensure a fair and sustainable future.
Will you find a cure for cancer, win a marathon, or save a coral reef? How will you cope with life’s ups and downs?
The game is the invention of Sydney based Andrea R. Thompson, a retired English language teacher. Andrea observed how hard it was to find a family game which could be adapted for different ability levels and where winning depended on making good choices, so she decided to create her own. She hopes that players learn how to win in a fun way ‘without hurting their friends’.
If you are still looking for that last minute present for the kids then this is a great little game where everyone gets a ‘fair go’. My 8 and 10 year old loved playing this game. It is very unique and whilst other games like Monopoly are about acquiring acquisitions and gaining wealth, Fair Go is about social responsibility. It teaches kids about the ups and downs of life and that the game is not over until the final roll of the dice 🙂
