What you get:

The deck is made up of 70 cards split into 3 categories:

🕵🏻 CURIOSITY is all about how you set up the activity. It’s about how you introduce it, how you hand out the things they’ll need, how you build the anticipation and eagerness for people to get stuck in.

🎨 CREATIVITY is focused on the activity you do and how you deliver it. It’s about designing something that helps people explore new thoughts and ideas. It could be a game, a journaling prompt or the creation of some joint artwork.

💬 CONVERSATION is absolutely key. This is where people get to share their thoughts and ahas, to ask questions, to seek agreement and so much more.

Whilst the cards are split into these three categories, there is absolutely a whole load of overlap where they interlink and combine.


Physical Deck: A7 size in a box ideal for in-person design sessions, whether that’s alone or with others.

Digital Deck: A series of 70 PNG files, perfect for online co-design sessions. Use them on digital whiteboards or share your screen for interactive discussions.

Please note that this is an image of the prototype deck - the printed ones will be bigger and proper playing card quality! The image is intended to give you a flavour of the cards.

The Story Behind The Playful Facilitator Deck

From Inspiration to Reality: The Creation of The Playful Facilitator Deck

It all began with a challenge I set for myself—a desire to design something new for an upcoming facilitator session. Although I had a repertoire of sessions I could have easily repeated, my drive to innovate was irresistible. At the end of 2023, I had immersed myself deeply in the world of card decks, starting with a course teaching others how to create their own (Deck Adventure), followed by developing the Insight Ignitors deck, which included crowdsourced questions from the facilitator community. This experience had card decks at the forefront of my mind.

Reflecting on my '3 C's framework'—Curiosity, Creativity, and Conversation—I pondered, "What would a card deck look like for this framework?" Suddenly, a spark of inspiration struck, and I was off. I quickly developed a prototype of The Playful Facilitator Deck in just over a week (!!!) and had the opportunity to playtest it with a group of facilitators. The response was overwhelmingly positive—they loved it! Participants were so engaged that they immediately expressed their desire to purchase the deck.

Fuelled by their enthusiasm and valuable feedback, I was motivated to refine and enhance the deck, ensuring it would be even more impactful. Knowing that my maternity leave was on the horizon, I recognised that waiting six months to bring this project to fruition was not an option—nor was it something I wanted to delay. Thankfully, my prior experience in creating card decks equipped me with the knowledge and skills needed to expedite the process.

Today, The Playful Facilitator Deck stands as a testament to the power of creativity and the potential of facilitators to transform their workshops. Each card is crafted to bring a burst of energy, inspiration, and engagement to your sessions, making every workshop a memorable journey of discovery.
