Give Me A Hand uses specially curated questions to create opportunities for meaningful conversations that do not usually arise from daily exchanges. It includes light-hearted questions like, “Where is your favourite place?” to thoughtful questions like, “What are some things you take for granted?”. If players do not wish to answer these questions, they pick an ‘I Need A Hand’ action card instead, which comprises of purposeful and memorable moments to share.
Circuit Breaker Edition: Pay as you wish & Support migrant workers in Singapore
Since we have all been spending a lot more time at home and with family during this period, we thought the game would be a good medium to help families ease tensions at home, promote understanding and deepen bonds. On that note, we’re releasing a work-in-progress version of Give Me A Hand as a digital release that can be played through our website. This Circuit Breaker Edition will be available online for a limited time only, so get yours now and share it with family, friends and colleagues before it's gone!
We want to make this conversational game available to all. As such, you may pay as you wish and 100% of the proceeds will go to support the migrant workers in Singapore who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic.
The Covid-19 Migrant Support Coalition (CMSC) is a collaborative effort between Citizen Adventures, ItsRainingRaincoats, Migrant x Me and Singapore Migrant Friends to help meet the needs of our migrant friends affected by the Circuit Breaker measures. The CMSC raise funds and organise resources to facilitate the provision of basic needs and essentials to our migrant friends in dormitories across Singapore during the Circuit breaker. (Find out more here.)
Many of us are privileged to be with family during this time, let us not take it for granted and use Give Me A Hand to deepen meaningful bonds with our loved ones. For migrant workers who are far from home and their loved ones, we hope this game can bring them comfort through other means.
