The elements or pieces involved in Inspirado recovery board game are two dice, three sets of cards, tokens (morale chips), and the board.

The overall tone of an Inspiradonian gameplay is motivational, with self-reflection and  meaningful conversations as the main outcomes.   


Every effort has been made to make playing simple and fun. The tiles on the board represent the different situations a person faces when in addiction and pursuing the recovery journey.

Winning and finishing the Game

From a therapeutic stance, every player wins in a game of Inspirado, whilst from the perspective of purely having fun, the player with the highest number of tokens wins. The tokens known as morale chips represents a player's recovery capital.


At the end of the game, using the acquired morale chips, players discuss aspects of their recovery capital currently relevant or obvious to  them. A worksheet known as ReCap Pots has been developed to serve as a guide to discuss a player's recovery capital. Each player receives a sheet  of five Recap Pots that is shared before the game starts. Players allocate their acquired chips to the pots most relevant to them as the game progresses.


Playing online may not require  the ReCap Pots sheet as  all the recovery capital statements are on the virtual chips.

A toolkit of resources has also been developed to support delivery of therapeutic sessions.

The 5 Inspiradonian Setups

The development of the game acknowledges people are at different stages of life and have different approaches to learning. In view of this, five (5) different setups have been developed as a step-wise way of learning to play the full game. Each of these setups can be played and enjoyed as a standalone game.
