Set up

Each player is a creature of the bewitched forest, except the Prince (who is lost and needs a compass) and Fortuna (who rules the game). Every creature has an assignment for interacting physically when meeting the Prince: you may shake hands, hug, massage, use your hands as pows, pinch or make bubble sounds, but you may never talk. How fast is the Prince going to recognize who is who if he is blindfolded?

The object of the game is for the blindfolded player holding the Prince card to find the player holding the Compass card.

A sensory friendly game

Lost Prince is the perfect game to play with people you know well. It’s easy, fun, fast and can be played in large groups. It spices up all meetings by experiencing the presence of others through touch and sound.

Ideal for families, friends, co-workers and class-mates.

Touch and feel!

Use your fingers, hands, arms or knees and find out the variety of ways to touch depending on the kind of card you play. The orange are friendly, the yellow are pleasant,  the purple are cheeky and the grey are mischievous. Be creative: the fun is guaranteed!

Being the Prince is such a revealing sensory experience that the most unexpected happens: couples don’t guess each other, parents don’t recognize their children, soulmates guess themselves wrong and the game becomes an astonishing experience that many want to try again and again.

Game play

Place chairs in a circle. Set the Compass card aside and deal an equal number of cards as players with the Prince and Fortuna always included in the deck. Only the players that have drawn the Prince and Fortuna cards reveal their identities.

Fortuna blindfolds the Prince with a scarf, and then takes the Compass card and gives it to another player, making sure that the Prince does not know whom. They players impersonating forest creatures should quietly switch seats any time they suspect that the Prince may be able to figure out who is sitting where.

The game starts when, with each of her hands, Fortuna preselects two players holding creature cards and then asks the Prince: Do you want to go left or right?. The Prince chooses left or right, and then the corresponding chosen player stands up and plays her card accordingly.

OTHER WAYS TO PLAY

At Schools

The game can be used as an activity to disinhibit children; to release tension; to talk about senses, emotions, the body … Lost Prince is being played every Friday on May 2017, at the primary school La Sínia (Vic, Barcelona) as part of a project of putting children to play together from different groups and levels. During 90 minutes, the children stay connected and enjoy the possibility given by the game of interacting with each other through touch.

The results are very positive: 99% rate it very high and thank the teachers who introduced the game. Through this ongoing test, we discovered that professionals of special needs and disabled childen recommend the game for its characteristics.

If you are interested in finding out more, contact us.

We also have proposals for families, for friends, for couples and for the elderly.
