How It Works

  • You take on the role of an adolescent in today’s world.
  • Groups of 2 to 5 players build characters, tell stories, and make discoveries together.
  • At the start of the game, you’re dealt Experience cards that represent the events and adventures of adolescent life.
  • The table has access to Relationship and Resource cards that represent the supportive people, programs, and services in adolescent’s lives.
  • You’ll match Experience, Relationship, and Resource cards to tell stories about your character’s adventures in adolescence.
  • Then it’s up to your fellow players to complete your story by adding a Discovery card that describes the milestone or development that your cards add up to.
  • What stories will you tell? How will you navigate adolescence? It all depends on the supports available and the creativity of your storytelling team.
  • Afterwards, you’ll reflect on the stories you’ve told and discuss how experiences, resources, and relationships shape adolescent development.

From 10 to 25 is a storytelling game about adolescence created by the FrameWorks Institute and the UCLA Center for the Developing Adolescent.
