I have an idea I’d like to share with you.
I have created a beautiful object and smashed it into a hundred pieces. I want to play a game with it.
I’d like to find a hundred people who can each have a piece of this object. All they have to do is to spend some time improving their local community in a new and fun way. How they do that is up to them. After a year, the hundred people will meet up, the pieces of the object will be joined to reveal what they have been a part of. The players will get to tell their individual story and see how other people have had fun attempting to make their world a better place.
This idea has come from my curiosity into why the word jewellery originally meant "plaything" and so I conducted research into play. I’ve discovered that civilization arises and unfolds in and as play and through play we can connect with our past and even change the shape of our future. My research also suggest that we are losing touch with the importance of play in society and this is leading to people feeling isolated and depressed. This game is my way of trying to make a difference.
This is a brand new idea, an original concept so any feedback or ideas on how to make this a success will be greatly appreciated and if you think you’d like to be one of the hundred people, please get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
