Life Matters Game



Life Matters

A board game for young people aged 13 to 19 years old about life's opportunities, risks and challenges available at £54.95


Life Matters has proven to be extremely effective in engaging young people in discussions about a variety of issues around sexual health and sexual behaviour, alcohol, smoking and other drugs.

The pack consists of:

  • 1 dice
  • 6 playing tokens
  • 6 female bodies with 7 body parts
  • 6 male bodies with 7 body parts
  • 55 questions about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs
  • 55 questions about sexual health and sexual behaviour
  • 12 'life' cards
  • 1 Life Matters board

It can be played by up to twelve people and takes about one hour to complete. The winner is the first player to finish with all seven body parts intact! Response to the game has been very positive and indicates that it is an excellent way for young people to learn about important issues relating to their health and wellbeing, including sexual health and behaviour, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

The game throws up the unexpected and shows how it takes knowledge and understanding of a wide variety of issues and sound decision making to become a winner. The issues raised will inevitably continue the discussions and inevitably lead to requests to replay the game, since only a fraction of the questions will be raised during any one game.
