Death Discussion Games Reviewed

End of life conversation starter games

Thanks to the good people at SevenPonds for this detailed article reviewing nine games designed to encourage conversations about the last taboo:

Since 2004, when the Bay Area nonprofit The Coda Alliance launched the card game Go Wish, several dozen companies have released games that focus on the heretofore taboo subject of end of life. And while it’s a given that all of these games offer some value — after all, anything that gets us thinking about the fact that we are all going to die is a good thing — we surmised that some would be more successful than others at getting people to talk about what matters most to them now and what they think will matter most as their lives come to an end.
