Using Life Stories Game in Therapy with Game Review
Updated: Jul 20, 2022
Life Stories is a simple game to use for counseling. It includes questions about family values, memories, and life goals. It opens up a dialogue about many issues that may otherwise never get discussed. I have used it in individual and group sessions, and the kids have always enjoyed the game. If there is a question that is difficult to answer or one that does not apply to the player, a stack of "alternative" cards is available to choose from. These are usually humorous cards for kids to act out something.

The gameboard has four paths with different colors, but all are laid out with the same symbols and directives. Each player will choose one color path to follow for the entire game. Whoever makes it to the middle of the gameboard first wins the round.
