What is diversophy®
diversophy® is the powerful game that helps you engage successfully with people of other backgrounds as well as understand the dynamics of your own culture. diversophy® brings people together, not only to learn about each other’s cultures, but to connect in a very human way. Players are enriched by each other’s stories, values, knowledge and skills. The us versus them mindset is replaced with mutual appreciation.
diversophy® is a large collection of intercultural learning games for enhancing cultural competence. It is generally played in small groups with a deck of cards. Participants take turns responding to 5 kinds of questions and challenges found on the cards and discuss their reactions with each other.
diversophy® games come in several formats:
— as a full game focused on a specific culture or cultural topic, each containing over 200 cards, providing ample material for a number of small groups to play and allowing the trainer to customize the choice of contents according to her or his learning objectives.
— as a mini-game, containing 100 cards. This format is less expensive and more practical for fewer groups or smaller one-time learning events.
Samples of the cards are found in each game description on this site.
