‘The Hand You Were Dealt’ is a group card game which explores how privilege affects people’s lives.
In the game, players are each dealt a hand of cards which contain statements that may indicate their level of privilege.
Players then debate who has ‘the best hand’ and why, and therefore who is the most privileged.
The game aims to make people more aware of, and discuss, how privilege affects everyone daily.
Sally believes everyone should have access to the things needed to live a happy, stable and healthy life, irrespective of ‘the hand they are dealt’.
