<something> EPIC: Happy times...in a box!

 EPIC is a cooperative board game that helps students in life transitions slow down, share stories, and be mindful. Players share stories from their own lives to build the foundation for telling a cohesive story of an imaginary character through school, home, social media, and outside settings. Players also facilitate mindfulness tasks for each other to test their awareness of their surroundings and themselves in hilarious ways. Through these actions, the game provides a time when players accept, acknowledge, and appreciate their own and others’ experiences with various emotions. With every turn of EPIC, players reflect, craft, and laugh.
