SDG Pyramid

WHAT IS THE SDG PYRAMID?

SDG Pyramid is a 3-tier representation of the UN 17 sustainable development goals, where SDG 1-10 represent People issues; SDG 11-15 represent Ecological issues; and SDG 16-17 resonate with Spiritual values. This formation is derived from the Balinese philosophy Tri Hita Karana – Three Ways to Happiness –  which emphasises the harmony of people with people, people with nature and people with the spiritual. It is also aligned with other ancient cultures and spiritual philosophies with Balinese Hindu, Islam, Chinese, Greek. This also aligns with IDEAS and U-Lab System thinking.

HOW DO I PLAY THE SDG PYRAMID PLAYCARDS?

Getting Started

Step 1: The SDG Pyramid play card requires minimum 2 players. For the game to be even more fun, rope in 2 more of your friends to make 3 players.  Step 1: Each player is given per fun pouch, 2 players minimum, at least as many players as decks. Combine all decks from all the players. Shuffle the decks.

Step 2: Distribute 5 cards for each player at the start of the game. Step 3: Put the remaining cards in the centre face down. This will be the DRAW PILE.

Step 4: Each player can begin to lay out their SDG tile cards face up on the table to form the SDG Pyramid. If there is a duplicate of SDG tile card or any Action card, the player should keep it in their hands and do not show to anyone.

Step 5: Start the game clockwise. Each player draw 2 cards from the draw pile during their turn and can play up to 5 cards (that is, lay out all 5 cards) or exercise their action cards at each round. You do not need to play any of the cards if you do not want to.

Note:

1. Each player cannot have more than 3 cards in their hand. Any excess cards are to be put back into the draw pile and reshuffled. If the draw pile is depleted, extra deck can be added and reshuffled.

2. If the two cards at the Spiritual tier of the pyramid are complete (it could be a Spiritual Link with an SDG 16 or SDG 17), you can evade one Challenge OR one Disruptor.

3. You can rearrange your People, Ecological, Spiritual or SDGs link card that has been laid out in your pyramid when necessary.

Action Cards

The People, Ecological, Spiritual Link cards act like Jokers and can replace any card in the corresponding tier.

The SDGs Link card act like the Master Joker and can replace any card in the pyramid EXCEPT the card at the Top of the Pyramid (Sustainable Development Goal card).

Disruptor card can be used to disrupt the SDG Pyramid arrangement of other players by taking out any one card from the formation.  Read out the words eg “SDG1 No Poverty” as you remove their card. Put this card back to the bottom of the draw pile together with the disruptor card after your play.

Challenge card can be used to challenge any player by taking one card from their hand to use it for your own Pyramid formation or keep in your hand. Read aloud for eg “SDG17 Partnerships for the Goals” the card you take from the player. Put the Challenge card back into the bottom of the draw pile after play.

Double Challenge:  If you draw a Challenge card from the player, you lose your Challenge card to the player you draw from. The player in turn gets “DOUBLE CHALLENGE” and can take all the cards in your hands or from any other player’s hands. The player who gets the DOUBLE CHALLENGE can keep only 3 cards he/she needs the most from the cards he/she has taken and put the rest back at the bottom of the draw pile.

Winning the Game

The first player to lay out the play cards and complete the SDG Pyramid (as shown in the instruction leaflet will be the winner.

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) card is the last card to be placed at the top of the Pyramid when all the remaining 17 goals cards are completed in the Pyramid form. Read aloud “SDG PYRAMID!” when the SDG logo card is placed. CONGRATS YOU ARE THE HAPPY WINNER!
