Super Sapiens is a family friendly 3 in 1 inclusive card game featuring 12 amazing female icons from around the globe, the perfect 21st century feminist game.
It’s a simple concept but one that turns play into inspiration: helping children to explore hidden histories, to cultivate understanding about the world (and learn how to make it better for all!), and to develop their own superpowers through self-care and self- love.
Choose from snap, memory or super gues for a new and creative game each time you play. Each pack contains 12 matching sets of 4 character cards, 1 card to cultivate superpowers, 1 map card, 1 card to help kids be good local/global citizens, and two cards to draw your own hero on!
Who & Why
Super Sapiens was created by Oxford University academics Arhat and Alexa Virdi after they had difficulty finding games that allowed their daughter Ava to see people who looked like her. Move over one-dimensional, white-centred Princess games!
The incredible artwork is by South African artist David Tshabalala.
The Conscious Kid has reviewed the game to help ensure it is inclusive and promotes positive racial identities.
A great way to have fun with your family whilst learning about incredible and inspiring women, hidden histories and promoting skills of self care and self love. .
