World Harmony Run Board Game Instructions

This game is designed for children in second grade and up.

Contents: Harmony Run board; Harmony Run Instructions; Harmony Run Questions; Harmony Run Answer Guide; One Group Token; 7 individual tokens; One die

Purpose: The purposes of the Harmony Run Game are as follows: To have a means to dynamically express the spirit and original concept of the Harmony Run;
To extend the reach of the Harmony Run beyond a single event in time;
To manifest the vision of the Harmony Run in a tangible form that is both educational and fun.

Overview Description:
The Harmony Run Game board has circles around the outside with different question categories. In the middle of the board, there is a European route map with segments along the way.

Individual tokens are for players to use in advancing around the exterior circles according to a roll of die. There is also a single group token with a Harmony Run logo which will advance around the US route map, segment by segment, according to the success of the players in answering questions and performing game tasks.

The Object of the Game:
The object of the game is for the players to work as a team to advance the group token along the segments of the US route starting and finishing in New York. The game is a cooperative and not a competitive game – though players must demonstrate their individual knowledge and talent during the game.

How the Game Is Played:
One player should be designated to read the questions or activities from the master question chart. Players can take turns having this responsibility. Whoever has this responsibility should be careful not to repeat questions already asked in the game. It is best to read the questions sequentially as they appear on the chart.

Place player’s colored pieces on the World Harmony Run Inspiring Facts circle in the upper right hand corner. Place the single group token with a Harmony Run logo on the New York segment of the US route map.

When players roll the die they advance their individual pieces along the circles according to the number on the die. Depending on what circle they land on, the player must answer a question or perform an activity described on the master question chart. The answers to all questions are in the World Harmony Run Answer Key.

To encourage the cooperative spirit and oneness, which is at the heart of the Run, if a player answers a question or completes a task on his own, the group token may advance two segments along the US route map. However, if the player needs help he can ask the group (the rest of the players in the game). If the group helps him to answer the question or complete the task, the group token would still advance – but only by one segment. If no one answers the question correctly the group token does not advance and the next player takes his turn.

When a player lands on one of the four World Harmony Run Inspiring Faccts card circles, the player picks a card from the pile of Harmony Run cards and answers the question on the back of the card. There is a copy of the Harmony Run card questions on the answer guide.

Once the group token travels all the way around the US route and lands on New York you have harmoniously completed the game!

Have fun playing the World Harmony Run Game!
