Ryuu - The Game™
Using a Fantasy World of Dragons toBuild Social Skills in Humans
Created by Joel Shaul and Rebecca Klaw
2 decks of 62 trading cards
The Game Guide CD-ROM
The Books of Ryuu CD-ROM
Ryuu - The Game™ is a non-competitive and therapeutic way of teaching social skills that utilizes an interest in fantasy, card collecting, acting and humor to make learning fun and more meaningful. The style of this product is also very "cool" and trendy and can easily be shared with friends.
The games (there are four different games described in The Game Guide CD) are based on six dragons that evolve from "Bablings" (pronounced babe-lings) to Big Wings in four stages, becoming more socially skilled with every evolution. Challenging these dragons are the Dark Forces - invisible villains who make us all socially inept. Helping the dragons are the Light Forces - invisible heroes who help us all to be socially successful. The games are simple initially and increase in complexity. The first game is a memory game to familiarize all the players with the cards, the second game is a question/answer game to gain mastery over the concepts and the third game (beginning and advanced) involves role-playing scenarios starring the dragons of Ryuu.
The Books of Ryuu CD contains the mythology of Ryuu. Browsing through beautifully designed pages, you can learn all about the dragons and all about the Forces. There is, among other things, an interactive map, poems for every character, stories and a glossary that defines such things as "Garplunk!" (...what the dragons of Ryuu say to each other when they sneeze). To purchase this separately, see below.
Price: $55 plus $5 shipping and handling.
