#Production_Value Cards

Lining out, test print, box folding, final printing, cutting, assembling … we’re in full production with the Value Card decks. 4 different colors, 3 different sizes, 8 different languages. All adjusted to the needs of the different international partners. An educational exercise on itself, and a strong complement to the educational board game on values ‘4 Headed Monkey’. Produced in our small cute village - Vila da Marmeleira.

Values are reflected in every act we do. “Call us Fonzies”. We were trees, then chair feet. Now upcycled for the educational…

Game production

“Let the Games start!”  We’re now in full production of the 16 big educational boardgames focusing on ‘values’. 7 countries involved, 8 different languages. “The 4 Headed Monkey” is soon ready! All play pieces hand-handled and individually tailored, in our little educational ‘Fablab’ in Vila da Marmeleira. And with touchable differences … inclusion/inclusive should be a permanent priority with/for everything.  


After extensive desk research and many online meetings, we defined a unique selection of 76 core values. Values relevant for the youth field and for which we as educators- wish to use in our educational programmes. Now we are happy to announce that the Value Cards are ready and available online! You can find the complete set of 76 Value Cards in different colors and sizes, a Card Instruction Leaflet, the Value Glossary, Value Cards Activity Bank. Please feel free to make use of all these…

The First Testing of Educational Board Game about ‘Values’

Yesterday our project partners Produções Fixe Unipessoal Lda and Ha Moment had the first exciting testing of the new educational board game on 'Values'. Game-mechanics are now finetuned and good discussions on values were already a result. This Sunday afternoon, a new testing with a group of enthusiast young people, at Tasca da Dede! And then, time to initiate the beginning of the local production processes to get this boardgame ready in 8 different languages. #BBGamesLegacy

BBGames Legacy Kick-off meeting in Antwerp

We just finished our Kick-off meeting of the new edition of Borderline Boardgames which was held in Antwerp, Belgium on 2-5 of October. 8 partners from 7 different countries who live FOR and BY the VALUES they promote, come together to create something completely NEW about EDUCATION of VALUES. We are giving our best and we believe the outputs of this project will benefit millions of educators and young people in need of some new approaches on the topic.
