We help students successfully transition to college.


OPTION PLAY is a simple and social card game to help students prepare for the transition from high school to college. Players will have lots of fun as they address a range of scenarios experienced by first-year college students. Because there are no real-life consequences, the game encourages players to take risks and learn from their choices. With OPTION PLAY, students will enjoy laughing with each other and at their own discomfort as they discuss issues and situations they are likely to encounter on campus.

I played this game last summer, right before I started at college, and that was fun because none of the experiences were real yet. It was all sort of like “what if this crazy thing happened to you?” and now I’m living through some of them.
