A wildly original board game
Playing the ChancesToChange board game is a rigorous practice of joy!
It is not about winning or achieving anything.
It is a reminder that you are already awake, that you have the possibility to access more of “you” and are ready to live your life to the fullest
Why did we create this game?
To express our love of unity consciousness and to transmit this love into the world; to support our stepping into the joy we know is possible in our lives.
How did we achieve this?
By exploring the question: How can we live our lives from the core, from our essence? And by following the flow of our life forces and that which gives us pleasure.
What did we come up with?
A board game that brings joy, ease and playfulness. A superb communication tool contained in a holistic and holographic form.
What does our board game look like
The board of the ChancesToChange board game is an infinity symbol on which you can make a long journey of three waves. There are blue dots spread over those three waves. These blue dots represent blue cards, which encompass the totality of all spiritual and physical knowledge. The blue cards all represent aspects of being human.
You play the game alone or with up to a maximum of 5 companion players. You come to the game with a question, a challenge or a physical condition – all is welcome. The essence of the board game is to help you to fall in love with your essential nature. This board game is extraordinary.
There is a great deal of freedom in the board game: you decide the amount of structure you want and how much you want to share with others.
The game is unique in its form; it is simple and gentle yet profound and not always easy. You are invited to stay with the discomfort and to discover spaciousness within your own mind.
Sharing our joy, heartbreak, sadness, welcoming all of who we are, embracing the fullness and harmonious balance between body, mind and soul.
There is no fixing, healing, teaching or analysing required. There is a deep invitation for each of the participants to remember their own magnificence and beauty.
The board game marries spirit and matter and makes light, love and joy available in our lives. It brings more of self into the world and has the quality of being a modern type of ceremony, even acting as a rite of passage through our life’s journey.
Through the ChancesToChange board game we create a sacred space, a loving community where we touch each others’ hearts. You benefit from the power of a small group and the magic that unfolds on a level beyond time and space while you are playing.
Who might like to explore our game?
The flexible nature of the game allows you to play it by yourself or with your family and friends and in a variety of settings. You can also play it at work and in your communities or use it in your (holistic) practice. It encourages self-responsibility and creativity. Reinventing your organisations becomes effortless.
What is wildly original in this board game?
The book: a rigorous practice of joy.
Veerle De Bock and Elaine McGoogan are crafting a book which is becoming a manual for delving deep into the ChancesToChange board game. The name of the book shape-shifted several times starting with “Practice don’t Preach Listening” to “Joyful practice of listening” into “A Rigorous Practice of Joy”.
You can read here a segment of section one of the book:

The emerging of the board
One of the many aspects is sacred geometry
Sacred geometry reveals our deep knowing that there is already a perfect order in the universe, everything is in the right place and perfectly harmonious order. Unity consciousness is available and accessible through the sacred geometry which underpins the board of the game and is present in the blue and yellow cards. The yellow cards are triads which form the divine structures organising the collective field and physical life. Through this we make unity consciousness available for everybody. The game weaves together ancient and new technologies and teachings in a playful way.
A potent tapestry of companion players
“Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people.”
We all count and contribute to weave awareness into the potent tapestry of life as a human being. One of our ways to connect all of us, companion players of the ChancesToChange board game, is our newsletter. You can register here on mailchimp in order to receive our newsletters.
The creators of the game
The ChancesToChange board game was birthed in December 2016 through Veerle De Bock. The underlying ideas and concepts have been developed over the last 5 years by a group consisting of Els Stouten, Eddie Doolan, Undine Whande, Elaine McGoogan with support from Sherry Pae, Leila Forsythe, Sarah Sporn-Koslow, Maaianne Knuth and Kirsten Osterkamp. Through their work together they got in touch with unity consciousness and were able to allow this consciousness to express itself through the game. Playing the game feels like engaging with unity consciousness.
