How the Printable Game Works:

Each Create Your Own School Counseling Game Card has a counseling theme and is color AND number-coded, designed to use with any game that uses color or dice to direct how a game is played.

To adapt a store-bought game, play as you normally would, only this time if the player, for example, draws a blue card (token, stick or block) or lands on a blue space, they would answer a prompt in the blue category. Or say the game is directed by the roll of a dice: if they roll a 3, for example, the player would answer a prompt in the number 3 category.

This resource is also designed to work stand alone. One option is to simply take turns rolling the DIY dice and answer the corresponding prompts. Another option is to play using one of the Create Your Own School Counseling Game Boards. Roll either the numbered or colored dice and move the game pawn forward based on the number or color rolled.

There are 5 prompts/questions/challenges in each of the 6 sections. If you'd like to keep track of which prompts have been answered, simply check off the box to the left.

And The Categories Are:

⚀ RED: Top 3...Player shares what their 3 best/3 favorite/3 highest ranked/"top 3" answers are.

⚁ BLUE Complete It...Player completes the sentence.

⚂ YELLOW True or False...Player responds to the statement with either "true" or "false."

⚃ GREEN What If...Player responds by answering what they would do in a particular situation.

⚄ PURPLE Risk...Player answers and/or follows the directions, many of which are experiential and role-play based.

⚅ ORANGE You Just... Player places themselves in a situation that hypothetically just happened and answer the prompt.
