Agreed by Consensus: The Tournament Game of Quotes
Positive, uplifting entertainment: part icebreaker, conversation starter, "getting to know you" tool, team building exercise, communication skills builder, teaching aide, therapeutic intervention, tournament, coffee table book, one small part game, and one big part cooperation made simple and fun.Agreed the Tournament of Enlightenment: A unique play concept of cooperation and consensus rather than competition. Players use a tournament format to choose their preferred quotations from several historical sages, and the winning quote makes it to the championship. Everyone wins! The tournament includes hundreds of great quotes and encourages discussion of "real stuff"--peace, love, honesty, trust, truth, dreams, hopes, forgiving and genuine friendship. If you pitted the wisdom of Gandhi against the wisdom of Mother Teresa, who would win? Pit the wisdom of Shakespeare, Buddha, Eleanor Roosevelt, William James, Helen Keller, Coach John Wooden, Maya Angelou, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Jane Austen, Plato, Anais Nin and a host of other thinkers up and bare witness to something good.

Select comments from the comment cards from the 2010 Mensa Mind Games Competition: Original idea, interesting concept, easy set up, smart green board and minimal packaging (it does not come in a big clumsy box, it comes in a neat container), promotes agreement, has a feel good quality to it, a way to get away from alienating first person shooter videos, actually it was cool: kind of like watching democracy and philosophies at work, non-competitive entertainment, based on a concept of no discernible winning player; rather everyone is a winner, leaves you knowing more than when you began playing, worth marketing but not to the competitive and strategic game player market.
