    Based on the popular Talkabout series, this board game has been designed to support work on social communication skills, self esteem and friendship skills.

Interest Age: 7 to 14
ISBN: 9781032294827

This new and expanded second edition of the Talkabout Board Game has been designed to support work on social skills, self-esteem, and friendship skills. The game backs up skills taught within the Talkabout book series but can also be used as a standalone resource.

The game takes you on a journey through the week, where you will encounter several different social skills tasks that you need to complete to move on to the weekend. Each day has a challenge that the child needs to complete before moving on to the next day, as well as the possibility of landing on 2 ‘chance cards’ and 1 further ‘challenge card’, depending on the roll of the dice. The purpose of the game is to work together to get everyone to the end of the week and there is, therefore, no winner of the game. Once you have got to the middle of the board, your role is to help the others get there too.

The Talkabout Board Game can be played at 6 different levels by using the colour coded challenge cards to work on the following skills:

  • Pack 1: Self-awareness and self-esteem (orange)
  • Pack 2: Body language (red)
  • Pack 3: Conversational skills (green)
  • Pack 4: Friendship skills (pink)
  • Pack 5: Assertiveness skills (yellow)
  • Or any combination of the above

This second edition features a greater variety of ‘chance cards’, updated ‘challenge cards’, and a higher chance of children completing a challenge. Designed for between 2 – 6 players and for ages 7 – 14, it will be an essential resource for educators and therapists.
