A* (A-star) Genius

The Emotional Intelligence board game Amygdala Genius (abbreviated A* i.e. A-star Genius), was developed in the United Kingdom. It’s the only board game of its type comprehensively designed to develop a young person’s knowledge, awareness, understanding, recognition, control and management of the strong feelings and emotions that drive challenging behaviours.

 .

Amygdala Genius creates prime learning opportunities and demonstrates how strong emotional feelings might be handled more effectively by young people promoting better behavioural, social, education and health outcomes.

.

Impulsive actions, lack of self-regulation and control and poor handling of strong emotions are significant determinants of many of the poor outcomes observed for children and young people. A* Genius helps to meet the urgent need for real improvement in how young people handle strong emotions.

.

The A* Genius game format is designed to make learning about Emotional Intelligence and Resilience an exciting, fun-filled process reducing the stress and anxiety often associated with more formal learning processes and, by so doing, enhance understanding and increase retention. Learning results from the carefully designed format, peer interaction, and from facilitator-player interactions and feedback.

.

The A* Genius board game is also designed to be a significant component of educational strategies to develop, deliver and consolidate learning in emotional health and intelligence in schools, colleges and other places of learning.
