“Consequences” the game

There are 3 games that fall under the name of “consequences”, each have different actual play styles and methods of play. They are the following:

Actions and consequences – Adult version cards.

“This card game is designed to practice making choices, taking actions and reviewing consequences in everyday life. It is for non-emergency situations that occur in day-to-day experiences in relationships, at work, at parties, etc.”

It addresses several areas in which adults may have challenges:

  • Anger
  • Money
  • Personal Health
  • Recovery
  • Relationships and communication
  • Responsibilities

For each situation that arises, these three questions will be asked to shape a new way of thinking;

  • What would I most likely do (in real life)?
  • What is the most likely to happen if I do this?
  • Would my action result in a positive or negative outcome?


Consequences – Parlor game.

Each person takes a turn writing a word or phrase forming part of a set structure in order to build a story. The exact sequences varies, but a typical sequence is:

  • Adjective for man
  • Man’s name
  • Adjective for woman
  • Woman’s name
  • Where they met
  • What he wore
  • What she wore
  • What he said to her
  • What she said to him
  • The consequence (A description of what happened after)
  • What the world said

Example of how this story would read:

Medicore Joe met transparent Kim at the bowling alley.

Joe wore a sea-foam green leisure suit. Kim wore a sandwich board. Joe said to Kim “During the last storm, we had a little party in the mud.” and Kim said “She wasn’t that into me”. As a consequence, the band got back together. And the world said “Somehow, I think I saw this coming.”

The game is normally done on paper with pen and is folded to hide the previous words before passing it to the next player.


Consequences – Picture.consequences-drawing

The game is like the ‘Parlor’ version above, in which you do it with a pen and paper, that you fold to hide the previous image drawn before passing it over to the next person.

It goes roughly as following: The first player draws the head, passes it unseen to the next player who will draw the body. Then the next person gets to draw the legs. When you unfold it, it will reveal a person or creature.
