The Friendship Game by The School of Life


A Game to Get the Best Out of Friendship


We know that friends are important to us, we choose them and place them at the heart of our lives – and The School of Life have brilliantly found a way to enrich us by knowing  'what we want when we get together with them is an opportunity to share what is really going on inside us as well as the chance to hear about what has touched, moved or preoccupied them.'


This game really does get the best out of friendships! Played on a board with a dice and cards,  a series of  questions about our lives are set out to invite us to share our thoughts and truths.   The more honestly and clearly we answer, the faster we get round the board, with the winner being the person who answers most sincerely and kindly about themselves, proving they are truly good friends!


The School of Life have created a game that is 'guaranteed to bring out new facets of our friends and will allow for a series of fascinating moments of revelation and mutual discovery.'


The cards cover four categories:


  • Love
  • Work
  • Self
  • Family


Questions cover topics such as:


  • Have you ever been secretly a bit attracted to someone you probably shouldn’t have been? (Light)
  • Have you ever acted on this attraction? (Heavy)
  • Do you have a strong sense of right and wrong? (Light)
  • Have you ever violated your own moral code? (Heavy)
  • Have you ever complained about a colleague’s behaviour? (Light)
  • Has anyone complained about your own behaviour in the workplace? (Heavy)
