Sylvania Franciscan Sisters invent "Thrive" board game
Will Mr. Cough or Minnie Mask infect you?

Sr. Nancy Linenkugel, OSF  has invented a board game focusing on "thriving" during COVID.
Will  Mr. Cough or Minnie Mask infect you?

"We’re all spending more time at home and in the house, so why not do something enjoyable during that self-imposed separation while emphasizing the precautions of social distancing, hand washing, and hand sanitizing?"

The game can easily be played both in-person around the family table as well as in an online format.

Sister Nancy tested the game with her family using an on-line format.  The adults enjoyed it, one used it with her grade-school aged grandchildren, and one is a junior high health teacher who is using it with her students.
