Give me FIVE!

An initiative from games publisher Steffen-Spiele

In recent months thousands of people have fled their home countries to seek protection in Germany.
Of course, taking care of basic needs is a priority, but people in crisis situations require not only essential provisions. Social and cultural activities are as much part of human existence as food and a roof over one’s head.
The reaction to games donations and initiatives, which we have organized in refugee reception centres, has proven that there is a great need for people to take a break from routine and enjoy fun and recreation.
One of the acute problems at accommodation centres is boredom.
Here, people spend most of the day waiting. A game is an ideal way to make waiting times seem a lot shorter!

We take pride in being games experts. We would like to contribute our experience as a games publisher and realize an ambitious idea.
We have created a practical game box which contains a collection of five different games. A set of durable counters in two colours enables children and adults to play games. The box should contain a rule booklet with translations into all major languages spoken at reception centres. FIVE! is to be a high volume edition that will be distributed free of charge at refugee accommodation and reception centres as well as other institutions.

How you can support our initiative Give me FIVE!

The five games featured in “FIVE!” are already on the table. We are supported by a manufacturer with the capacity to produce a high number of games at short notice. With the German Guide and Scout Association (BDP) we have also attracted a partner willing to give their expertise and to help supervise the project. But we still need help to turn such an ambitious non-profit initiative of this size into reality.


We’re appealing for:

  • Sponsors and Öffnet externen Link in neuem Fensterfinancial support
  • Translators to volunteer a free translation service to produce game rules in Arabic, Dari and Urdu
  • Volunteers to pledge their support with related logistics work: Media and PR work, fundraising, publicity for the initiative on social media networks
