Who needs this?
Groups benefit when members meet each other. Connections between individuals make getting things done more efficient and effective.
While a group may want its members to connect with each other, individuals may not always want to go to connecting events. Mixers and socials are taxing to anyone who is introverted, neurodiverse, shy, or not in the mood.
Often this can be because small talk tends to be unstructured and shallow.
small talk adds structure and depth to interactions in large groups. No one needs to wonder what they are supposed to do or say. After an event is over, participants will know something memorable about each other. This game is a complete activity by itself, as an icebreaker, or combined with other activities that require partners or teams.
NOTE: small talk can be played on its own with a 12-sided die. These are included with our gathering kits but can also be rolled with a browser or free app on your phone. Individual booklets cost $5.99.
small talk is meant for interacting. Each participant should have their own copy. For bulk orders, contact us at the forge.
Who needs this?
Everyone has their own biases, worldviews, and experiences that make them unique. Differences and diversity makes a group stronger when appreciated and understood.
unicate is a game that helps with appreciation and understanding by providing a safe way for people to explore elements of how we communicate with each other, ways we overcome obstacles, and idioms that may not be as well known as we think. Perfect for pairs or larger groups, as a single exercise or a springboard for a broader discussion.
NOTE: unicate is designed to be played with a set of polyhedral dice. These are included with our gathering kits but can also be rolled with a browser or free app on your phone. Individual booklets cost $5.99

Tabletop Scenario Based Learning
You may have heard of Scenario Based Learning or SBL before. Many experts and academics have studied it for a long time because of how effective it is. They have found that it can quickly build expertise normally only learned on the job. SBL sets learning in a work-related context, or a scenario, to make learning feel more realistic and applicable. Scenarios also make lessons easier to remember.
This type of training is often used for training related to compliance, soft skills, and leadership. Usually it is delivered over the computer. The cost of setting this training up is worth the effort because it can be repeated the same way for a large number of learners, over and over again.
We don't always work alone
While SBL is usually designed for a single person, Tabletop Scenario Based Learning or TTSBL is designed for teams and requires no computer development, This makes it ideal for helping with needs specific to a certain group.
Leadership and soft skills are best learned with other people. TTSBL enables the team interactions that would actually take place back on the job.
How does it work?
In a TTSBL session, a training facilitator guides the learners through the set-up to a scenario, or an inciting incident. Group members have a structured way of proposing what they would do in that situation. The guide uses probability dice to determine the success of riskier ideas.
Working as a team, your learners will explore the different facets of the needed teaching, learning together and building a new shared experience to help with team cohesion and understanding.
