The Next Game in the Series


With Strengths and Troubles ™ The Wellness Board Game published, we're working on the next in the Goal Quest Games series, Goal Hero™.

Goal Hero will also be a tabletop game:  an RPG (Role Playing Game) adventure where the players go on a quest. That quest is to turn a wish into a viable goal.

Once again the Wellness Dimensions will play a part!

We have set ourselves some challenging objectives for this new game:
1. It must be fun.
2. Playable by two to five players in an hour or less.
3. Players immerse themselves in the setting and their chosen roles and cooperate to succeed in the  quest.
4. Everyone learns the components of an actionable goal.
5. After playing, participants will be better equipped to set goals of their own.

We've made good progress on Goal Hero and hope to publish it this year.

Welcome to the Goal Quest Games Blog!

We are excited you are here! We are a sister team; Marcia is a professional game designer and Jan is a Certified Peer Support Specialist working in Community Mental Health with people who are in recovery from mental illness.

Working on recovery includes an important aspect: setting goals. So we decided to make some games about goal setting! It is our hope that these games, the Goal Quest series, will bring an element of fun and lighthearted discussion to what can be a difficult process.

The initial step toward setting goals involves recognizing strengths. So the first game in the Goal Quest series focuses on helping people realize their unique abilities. Named Strengths and Troubles (TM), the game encourages players to think about their positive traits and identifies tools that can be used when trouble strikes!

Coming Up Next: Images of the game!
