“Charms is a game to build community…it’s thought provoking and fun and could be kind-of life changing…I can guarantee you that it will get people engaged and involved in one another and make them think of strangers as neighbors. It is that powerful.”

Overview (3-8 players, ages 12 and up, 30-90 minutes): Charms is a fun, easy to learn party game where each player takes a turn as the Quester by asking a question. Everyone else finds their inner sage and tries to write the wisest answer based on the Quester's roll of the charms, where they landed, and what this could mean for the Quester. The Quester then picks the winning answer. The player with the most winning answers wins the game.

 Understand the game in 4 basic steps.

1. Draw a card, read a question to the group, and cast 9 random charms onto the board. Remove "out of play" charms.

2. Use the KEY CARD to review charm meanings. Other players quickly write an answer to your question based on the charms, where they landed on the board, and what this could mean for you.

3. The answers are read aloud. You pick the one that best answers your question, and the author is revealed as the winner of the round.

4. Pass the charms to the left and play again until everyone has asked a question. The player who writes the most winning answers is crowned the Charms Champion of Insight!

Key Card shows charms and their meanings.
