One of a Kind: A Self-Esteem Game
A Self-Esteem Card Game
by Max Nass, LMHC and Marcia Nass, M.S.
Based on the popular game Crazy Eights, this lively card game delivers fast-paced fun while helping kids become aware of their unique and special qualities. Players draw, match, and shed cards, answering questions as they go. (For example: “Would you choose yourself as a friend? Why or why not?”)
Because only half of the cards include questions, the game moves along at a brisk pace. Special cards—Switch Direction, Leap, and Wild Cards—introduce an element of surprise. Players race to get rid of their cards and be first to proclaim “One of a Kind.” For added excitement, the rules provide a way for quick-thinking players to jump in at the last minute and keep the game alive.
After each round of play, smiles abound—because kids are not only having fun but also feeling better about themselves. For 2 to 4 players.
