Make it a Bundle - and double-deck your camp, school, or out-of-school program with our two best-selling card games: Ubuntu Cards and 52 Fathom Cards. Both decks offer so many teachable moments and foster conversation and playful team-building experiences. Did we say they create laughter too? They do! Here’s a short description of each deck.
High 5's Ubuntu Cards(c) are a multi-functional deck of cards that encourage a group to interact, find connections and have fun. There are 54 cards in each deck. The cards offer limitless reflection opportunities through metaphor, but we have also discovered that they also offer just as many opportunities for group interaction and creative play.
The directions include instructions for 13 different games and initiatives, but we are constantly discovering new ways to use them and you will too! You can create your own interactive experiences and after your group has played with them they too will come up with variations - which is another powerful team-building initiative. You'll want to bring these cards everywhere you go!
The word Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term and philosophy. (Nguni is a subset of the larger family of Bantu languages and peoples in the southern portion of Africa.) The term means “humanity” and is frequently translated to “I am because we are.” Ubuntu highlights our interconnectedness as a community.
Foster community building, interaction, reflection and storytelling with 52 Fathoms, a uniquely designed deck of playing cards created by an adventurous educator in search of deeper meaning and understanding with groups. As a verb, Fathom means to search for deeper meaning and understanding. As a noun, fathom is a nautical unit of measurement. 52 Fathoms nautical adventure imagery is created to inspire conversations, play games, build relationships and process group experiences.
