“Acting Kindly” at Happy Streets, Ahmedabad
Greetings Earthlings! One of the big pieces of news I hinted at recently is Planet Earthlings has created the prototype for our first game. It is an actual card game called “Acting Kindly.” It’s a social game where players practice random acts of kindness and playful deeds to bring joy to others. In the game each team is a spaceship. They draw cards and do deeds, challenges or are interrupted by rascals. Together they gather fuel from their actions in order to merge with other teams to create a whole community of Earthlings helping others, meeting strangers and entertaining crowds. The Proto-Deck was recently finished and we’re getting a fantastic reaction to the cards and game play.
You can check out the game HERE. We’ve arranged to play a huge game this Sunday, May 8th at 8 am here in Ahmedabad as part of the Times of India “Happy Streets” event. We’ve been clowning at Happy Streets the past few weeks and you can see a fun photo of Greg in the bottom right of the Times on April 18th…and a nice mention of us in a story on April 25th. Please come to CG Road near CG Square Mall right opposite the little Havmor Ice Cream shop at 7:45 am to collect your cards and start forming teams. Greg will be on the main stage explaining the game at 8 am. The first 100 teams to show up at Happy Streets north of the main stage will receive a free ProtoDeck and take part in the game. It will be tremendous fun running around interacting with the crowd.
If you want to catch up on the idea behind the game take a look at the “Flight Manual.”
The company is soon starting a pan-India crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to complete the full 54 card deck of “Acting Kindly.” They will also be connecting with summer camps and later schools so kids can create their own cards and influence the development of the game. Planet Earthlings has created a social network at www.planetearthlings.org to bring together youth, parents, educators and others interested in empowering children. On the website they will be part of the Planet Earthlings team to add their ideas and efforts to changing the world.
Our long-term plan is to create a fully graphical 3D web and app based virtual world where children from all over the planet can learn, play and create together both online and offline. “The ability to learn anything from anywhere is one of the most exciting developments of our time,” Greg often says. “We are going to empower young people using cutting edge technology and values of a strong global community.”
