Plot

Playing Inspirado is now available to support individuals, friends and families who may consider having recovery conversations with playing the recovery board game online.

Getting distracted during online meetings is not uncommon, especially in the comfort of home environment in addition to either waiting too long to contribute or not having anything to say.

Hosting an online meeting with a planned virtual activity (such as recovery-focused online board games and or card games) as the vehicle for the agenda for the meeting may help with members of the group focus while enriching their sense of connectedness through participation. 

Platforms and Devices

The online version of the board game is hosted on Tabletopia

 

Tabletopia is a digital sandbox system for playing board games with no artificial intelligence (AI) to enforce the rules. This means players have a virtual experience similar to playing a board game in real life. Players have the ability to roll the dice, pick and flip cards, while picking up and moving their pawns round the board.

 

The online version of the board game can be played on PCs, laptops and mobile devices. Interested players can play with each other remotely with each other in the comfort of their homes.

 

NB: Cross platform play, such as PCs and mobile devices, is currently not supported. This means players must all play from an agreed platform, such as computers (including laptops) or mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, etc), but not both.
