A game which can make your wishes come true.

The wheel of wishes is a board game whose purpose is to understand how to make one's wish come true. It can be played by single players and teams (3 to 8). From 10 to 100 years (and beyond...)

During the game, the players make up the stories of how they could make their dream come true starting from unusual situations and equipped with unlikely items.
Each player chooses one token (a recycled plastic cap) and places it on one of the flower petals on the board. The wheels, spun randomly, determine the players' identity: the starting condition of the different players who are trying to make their wishes come true. The wheels can be reversed and personalized.

This game stimulates the use of imagination and problem-solving skills, but it also leads to more serious thoughts: each person's opportunities to make one's own wish come true, as well as asserting those rights that should belong to every human being, are made rather unequal by the place and situation one lives in.

The Wheel of wishes is made by Giocherenda, an association for social promotion created by young refugees from several countries in Africa, who now live in Sicily. Giocherenda creates games aimed at sharing and mutual knowledge through storytelling. The term “giocherenda” comes from the African language poular and it means “solidarity, interdependence, joy of creating together”. All Giocherenda games are cooperative, no one loses!

The game is sold in a handmade African Dutch wax bag (varying patterns).

Note: shipping costs are the same up to 5 kg (in case of multiple purchases); 1 game weighs c. 1kg.
