Our first game, Strengths and Troubles TM
: The Wellness Board Game
helps players to realize their strengths. Our new game prepares them to set personal goals..
is a Role-Playing Game, an RPG adventure where players go on a quest. That quest is to turn Green the Meeple's wish into a goal.
A meeple is a people token for game play. Green, our meeple in Goal Hero

The power of a Role-Playing Game
Players in an RPG:
- Take the perspectives of others.
- Use creative problem-solving skills.

In Goal Hero
players go on a goal-setting adventure. But they're not setting their own goal, they're helping Green the Meeple set a goal.

One of Green's wishes launches the Quest. Once again the Wellness Dimensions play a part!
- The players have some distance and privacy.
Players can remain objective and are not put on the spot revealing or defending their own personal goals. As one player said, "I'm not nervous working on Green's goal, but I'll still be thinking about mine."
- The adventure provides an exercise in empathy, collaboration, and problem-solving.
- As players work out Green's goal they learn the important elements of goal setting in a fun, non-threatening way.
