REStrukt – Empowering your community

Custom games designed to help you learn and explore problems to find innovative solutions

About REStrukt

REStrukt is the first suite of games by TabTalks, focused on community engagement. The game explores the complex and emotive relationships in a community faced with a challenge.

REStrukt is a multi-player card game that helps communities understand resilience. REStrukt does not define resilience, instead it is based around guiding principles, allowing for participants to come to a common understanding and learn about place-based community actions.

REStrukt helps set a fun, high-energy and inclusive tone for follow-up discussions. Through the game all stakeholders learn to respect the role of others in the room and empathize with issues others might face. REStrukt also provides a process through which players can learn, and apply their current knowledge in new and innovative ways.

The game can be played as it is, or modified if you are seeking to build or empower your community and are dealing with a specific problem.
