The Loser Game

School of Life

$23.95 CAD

Learn how to fail well.

Normally those who win at games do so because they know how to triumph, succeed, and outwit others. This is a game with a difference: those who win at it are great at losing; they know all about frustrations and difficulty and how optimally to respond to it. This game invites us to answer questions about the challenges we've faced—in love, work etc.—and rewards players for speaking with particular frankness and good humour about their lives. In a world obsessed with success, The Loser Game gently suggests that losing isn't some freakish anomaly, it's an inevitable part of being human.

The cards cover 5 categories:

  • Self
  • Relationships
  • Work
  • Body & Mind

  • Name a surprising, basic and embarrassing gap in your knowledge.
