- If you are a group of people who have not previously worked as a team: Spread the cards on the table with the text faced up. Take turns to pick a card and read the text. Tell a story or tell why you think the card is important. You might have a special experience related to any of the cards that could be shared and discussed.
- If you have been working together in this team for some time: Spread the cards on the table with the text faced up. Take turns to pick a card and read the text. Discuss in the group if this is something you have experienced in this particular team. Also, discuss & document what actions you would like to take to increase safety based on what issues you are experiencing and how to further increase the effects of the positive cards.
- Option: Collect points. Minus 2 points if you have experienced one of the negative cards. 1 plus point for every card that has a positive effect. Keep the scores on a flip chart and discuss how you could increase the total score at the end of the game, by turning around some of the negative cards or by increasing the number of positive cards in relation to negative cards.
