5min Introduction of the current phase of the game
1min Presentation of answer/card/group
Step by step
1. All groups start with their checkers on the space number 8.
2. Each group gets one card from the “Contemplate!”-deck and has 5 minutes to read the card and discuss about the question.
3. When time runs out, each group (one at a time) reads or explains their card to the others and then has 1 minute to share their answer with the other groups. After the 1 minute presentation of the answer the facilitators’ task is to engage all the participants in the debate and stimulate them to share their thoughts on the topic. Finally the facilitator reads the official answer (written in another card) and decides if the answer given by the group can be considered correct or not.
4. If the answer is correct, the group moves forward as many steps as written on the board where the checker currently is placed. Groups that answer wrong have to remain in their place.
5. This phase of the board game has 7 rounds and ends when the last step is completed by all groups.
