Game of Awesome


Game of Awesome inspires children to start writing. Free to schools in New Zealand schools, the game was co-designed with 8 to 12 year-old students and educational experts to improve literacy in an unconventional manner. Through entertaining gameplay, it unlocks imagination and fosters a new love of language – notably among disengaged learners. Playing cards featuring hilarious ideas and quirky illustrations prompt creative self-expression, while variations of the rules encourage social interaction and storytelling.
