Ryuu - The Game
Using a Fantasy World of Dragons to Build Social Skills in Humans.

Ryuu - The Game is a new trading card based game created by Joel Shaul and Rebecca Klaw. The game is intended to teach social skills. The starter kit includes instructions for three different games. It also includes beautifully illustrated, eye-catching trading cards and two CDs which includes a story and backgrounds of the fantasy characters.

Ryuu creates interest in issues our students deal with on a day to day basis through highly relatable, fantasy trading cards of dragons and villains. Ryuu may help our students learn they are not alone in their feelings & actions. Through these games and discussions of the characters, social skills can be built. Some examples of trading cards include, Flexibility, Acceptance, Emotional Know-How, Self-Calmer, Triumph Over Teasing, & Good Loser.
