That's awesome, Fran! Thanks for sharing that game. I'd not seen it before.

I've played the Getting Real game, based on Susan Campbell's awesome book.
Not about consensus, but rather about good communication.
You can buy the game here:

This is a board game based on NVC, Non-Violent Communication. It helps to see the place "beyond right-doing and wrong-doing" the underlying premise of consensus & cooperation. The website has some other games as well.

The No-Fault Zone Game uses a map and card decks to guide you,
step by step, to the clarity, understanding and connection you want- within yourself and with others. It makes conversations visible, tangible, and fun for
ages 5-95 and across the sometimes-great divide.

I'm looking for a board game or games for adults that teaches or gives practice in cooperation or consensus, for our forming cohousing group. Does anyone have experience with the Fair Play Games such as Community, Our Town,
New America, Personal Portraits, etc., or do you have other games to
recommend? Ideally they should be playable by 5 to 12 or more players and,
of course, be fun.
