There are at least two kinds of games One would be called. finite the other infinite A finite game is played for the. purpose of winning and an infinite game is played for the. purpose of continuing to play The rules of a finite game may. not change the rules of an infinite game must The finite. game player aims to win eternal life the infinite player aims. for eternal birth James P Carse, There s so much to do Our communities are falling apart young people old people.
brown people black people poor people and lots of other people aren t getting the. respect or power they deserve Why play games when there s so much work to do. There are a lot of reasons to look at but first let s define what we re talking about. What Are Cooperative Games, Cooperative games emphasize participation challenge and fun rather then defeating. someone Cooperative games are fun cooperative challenging games in which the. group is confronted with a specific problem to solve Initiative games. can be used for several reasons The games can be used to. demonstrate and teach leadership skills to people which helps to. promote the growth of trust and problem solving skills in groups. Games demonstrate a process of thinking about experiences that. helps people learn and practice responsibility Cooperative games are. not new Some of the classic games we participated in as children are. classic because of the play emphasis There may be competition. involved but the outcome of the competition is not sitting out or. losing Instead it may involve switching teams so that everyone ends. up on the winning team Some people avoid calling them games choosing activity. challenge or problem instead Whatever a group chooses to call them these. games can boost our efforts to create powerful lasting community change. Why Play Games, When a group of people are preparing to participate in social change. there needs to be some breaking down of inhibitions before they. become group participants There is no I in T E A M and all that. Before a group can build effective solutions to the problems facing. their communities they need to trust each other and communicate. Cooperative games also help set the tone of an action Social change. work is often hard driven and energy consuming Many groups find. that cooperative games offer a brisk friendly way to bring together passionate task. oriented goals with focused group driven teambuilding In other words fun and. games can propel social change Another purpose of games is to get people to think. together as a team so that everyone in the group has input and shares ideas When. Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change www commonaction org 3. we have input we have ownership and when more people have ownership there is. more success, Aren t Games Distracting, When facilitated well games can actually accentuate the purpose of. your day s work or your group s purpose Through a technique called. framing games become relevant and powerful tools to break down. barriers build up focus and make your group s process more. effective and inclusive of all involved In all settings games should be. used to build a sense of purpose passion and opportunity Without. those pieces as goals games become pacifiers for the grown as their. potential to stave off the appetite of a group that hungers for power. is immense In classrooms where teachers use games as fillers the students mope. lazily back to their desks as they know the grueling pain of continuity is about to. continue In classrooms where teachers use the games in context of the lessons. students aim to learn with eagerness and a sense of purpose. Which Games Should We Play, Many people use games as an introduction or a closing to their. activities It s a good idea to add them throughout your day. between or as a part of a larger event Games are a great way. to break up the monotony of a long day s learning or a hard. day s work They are also a great way to keep small children. busy and big children happy You may want to play a game to. reinforce teamwork after a bad day because they happen or. play a game to relieve some group stress or build the scenario to. work through a problem Games are actually tools that a skilled. facilitator has at their fingertips in a time of need. Great How do we get started, The following booklet is full of easy to use games Play them safe play them.
purposefully play fun and play hard So then PLAY ON PLAYERS And feel free to. download this from The Freechild Project website and to print out this guide double. sided or on re used paper please It s our world and we CAN change it.

TIPS FOR FACILITATORS, This guide can assist you in facilitating the activities you group needs and to share. them with other people This isn t an expert s guide that is set in stone each activity. should be altered to meet your group s needs and situation When you use these. games for social change work the role of the facilitator is very important and must be. intentional, TIP 1 Be a Facilitator, Presenting games as important and meaningful is challenging for the most. experienced facilitators A facilitator s job has three parts lead the activities guide. the reflection and be enthusiastic Enthusiasm is contagious Keep debriefing simple. and straightforward Also share personal experiences and remember that as a young. person a student a community member or an adult ally you have a wealth of. knowledge and experience to draw from Often the mood of the instructor will set. the tone for the entire group So above all be positive and have fun with the activity. with the session and with the players, TIP 2 Create Guidelines Goals. Have participants create ground rules or guidelines before you begin the games. Brainstorm potential rules and write them down but avoid too many rules There are. three essential guidelines, Safety first Never compromise the safety of yourself or others. Challenge by choice If someone wants to sit out that s cool. Every group should have some specific goals that all players agree on Some goals. have included Break down the barriers that may exist between students such as race. sex background and social status Build a sense of teamwork and purpose Show that. everyone has different strengths and abilities to offer the group and that no one is. better than anyone else, TIP 3 Think about Framing Sequencing.
The purpose of the games is often set during the introduction or framing of the. activity The activity may be introduced as a story creating a magical place where. dangerous things can happen without teamwork For a more mature grow games can. be introduced as metaphors alerting the participants to look for deeper meaning. Another important consideration is the order in which you play games or sequencing. If a group has never played together it might be important to do icebreakers and to. soften the personal space bubble If they are more comfortable with each other. try bursting the bubble and get deep in your activities Try to put complex. activities after less challenging ones to build a sense of accomplishment. Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change www commonaction org 5. TIP 4 Reflect Reflect Reflect, One way to highlight the role of games in social change is in the reflection after the. activity An easy way to see the relevance of reflection is to picture games as a circle. you start with an explanation of the activity framing its purpose and goals to the. group The activity progresses with the facilitator taking a more hands on or less. guiding approach as needed Finally the group reflection helps participants see how. they met the goal and to envision the broader social change implications Then the. group has come full circle Be as concrete or as spacey as you want during the. activities its important to lose ourselves in what we re doing and to have a lot of. fun But remember to bring it all back to reality with the reflection Reflecting on the. activities is vital to bring the group back to the reason why they re playing games. The following types of questions can be useful in reflecting. Open ended questions prevents yes and no answers What was the purpose. of the game What did you learn about yourself, Feeling questions requires participants to reflect on how they feel about. what they did How did it feel when you started to pull it together. Judgment questions asks participants to make decisions about things what. was the best part Was it a good idea, Guiding questions steers the participants toward the purpose of the activity. and keep the discussion focused What got you all going in the right. Closing questions helps participants draw conclusions and end the discussion. What did you learn What would you do differently, TIP 5 Make Meaning With Players. At their best the following activities can serve as bridges between social change. work learning and community building reinforcing the need for communication co. learning and collective decision making At worst they can be tools of oppression. and alienation serving to support vertical education practices and isolate people. from each other In the words of educator Paulo Freire A real humanist can be. identified more by his trust in the people which engages him in their struggle than. by a thousand actions in their favor without that trust. Let the games take their own life and they will If it feels like a group just wants to. play all day just do that If they want to get deep do that Let the group tell you. where they want to go and they will When the people lead the facilitator should.

work Sometimes we assume that just because we share a. common interest we ll get to know each other and that s. just not true Projects will go on for months before people. really get comfortable with each other These games are. great for introductions and getting to know people in new environments. or to reminder us who we re working with in established communities. Props Blindfolds, Purpose Icebreaker, Procedure There are many variations on the Line Up By challenges The basic. idea is to have the group line up in a straight line according to some specific criteria. and with some type of restriction on their actions Here are some ideas that can be. altered to meet your group s needs Give specific guidelines before beginning To line. up by height give everyone blindfolds Make sure they agree to specific safety rules. such as no pushing moving slowly stopping when the instructor says stop etc Once. the students are blindfolded tell them they must line up according to height with the. shortest person in the front the tallest in the back To line up by birthday challenge. the group without talking or making any vocal sounds to line up according to. birthday January 1 at the front and December 31 at the back. Find Your Type, Props Sets of 3x5 cards with matching animals enough for each person to have a. Purpose Icebreaker, Procedure Get the group in a circle Tell everyone the may not speak Give each. person a card with an animal on it Tell them to find their mates by doing something. that animal would do Start them all at the same time. Toss A Name, Props Balls and other soft throwing items rubber chickens hacky sacks. Purpose Icebreaker Teamwork, Procedure With the group standing in a circle have participants go around saying.
their names Then show them a ball and explain the activity this way First I will say. my name like I am Adam Then I will say and this is Nadem Then I will through. the ball to Nadem Nadem will say That is Adam I am Nadem and this is Tannisha. And so on until all the names in the circle are strung onto the list The game goes. until everyone has been called without anyone being repeated If someone s name is. Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change www commonaction org 7. forgot have the group spot them Variations include going around multiple times. attempting to beat the last speed kept with a stopwatch Another version is to have. multiple balls flying at the same time spaced apart by 2 or 3 people.
