How to play diversophy®

Download our Facilitation Guide in different languages with full instructions for preparation, play & debrief.

Use the game for training or classroom group learning in groups of 3-8 people. Several groups may play simultaneously with a single game package.

Each game includes up to 250 game cards in 5 different types.

• Play using cards only from a randomized card deck, or by rolling a six-colored rolling cube. A question mark on the rolling cube also allows the player to ask a cultural question of another in the group, further encouraging players to share and discuss their differences and similarities.


• Players respond to and follow the instructions on the cards, trying to choose the best answers and most appropriate behaviors for the environment they are discussing. They keep the cards they win and discard those they lose.


• Individuals and teams with the most card points at the end of the game are the champions of the day, but everyone who learns is a permanent winner.
