NUMBER OF PLAYERS: Two or more, though ideally played with larger groups. PREPARATION: -Write down one way you would like to change the world for the better. GAMEPLAY: -Choose a color for your thinking process. If group is small, rank colors in order of preference as you may have to play more than one role. WHITE: will provide facts YELLOW: will be optimistic BLACK: will be judgmental RED: will express feelings GREEN: will express possibilities and alternatives -Draw polygon of three to ten three-inch long sides such that player's shapes can align edge to edge. Color your polygon with chosen color. -Find others with whom to form an assemblage. Ideally, this group will have at least six members but could be as small as two. -Create a tangram-like assemblage with your polygons. This will become your logo. -Player one shares their desire to change the world, after which other players engage in thinking process based on chosen color. Each color should have a voice if possible. Player one takes notes, revising tangram if desired. Rotate through whole group. -Group debates which idea is best to adopt as its mission. -Group works together to carry out its mission.
Idea is based on an assemblage of Manuel Delanda’s book ASSEMBLAGE THEORY and Edward de Bono’s book SIX THINKING HATS.
