How Many Things to Build the Future?


How Many Things to Build the Future? is a game of collaboration, conversation and construction. A simple set of rules turn 50 objects into an environment for two or more people to think and talk about big ideas in simple, physical ways.

This is a collaborative game for two or more people playing together in one group. The game cards are used to select an abstract word (for example ‘future’ or ‘thought’) that the group must arrange some or all of the objects in response to. The cards also determine how the group works together (for example ‘work in silence’ or ‘think of it as a dance’). The rules are deliberately open so that players work together to deal with any uncertainty.  At the end there are no winners or losers.

This game is based on How Many Chairs to Build The Future?
