While you playfully discover all the small wonders of life, your own qualities and those of others will surprise you.

The treasures stimulate your self-confidence, enlarge your self-insight and help you to recognize the hidden gems within yourself and others – now and forever. 

The chores are divided into themes that embrace life. They give you more self-insight, enjoyment, spontaneity and let you pause for a moment to appreciate all the extra-ordinary things of everyday life. 

In general, treasure cards with two keys are best understood by players aged nine and above. When a card holds only one key, it is also suitable for players below that age.

Where most people are usually (meant to be) modest, you have to ascribe certain qualities to yourself here. Boom! The first pile foundation of your positive self-image is inserted firmly into the ground!
