ROLLING TO WIN
Over Arthritis

Each player should have his or her own game sheet with 13 principles or actions that can prevent or reduce the problems with arthritis. They are numbered from 0 thru 12. Each principle/action row has four squares labeled: Important Understand Started Habit. When a player claims a principle/action (see below), he or she should indicate this by marking one of the squares in that row that would correctly identify how the player is doing in implementing the principle/action. If he or she agrees it is important, the Important box should be marked. If player fully understands the principle/action and how to implement it, the Understand box should be marked. If the player has actually started the action, the Started box should be marked. If the player has made it a habit to implement the principle/action as shown by consistently doing it for at least two consecutive weeks, the Habit box should be marked. This allows the game sheet to be an on-going program and progress sheet for the player. On a turn, player rolls dice and by adding or subtracting them comes up with a number that allows him or her to claim a particular principle or action. For example, player could role a 5 and a 2. That means player could add the dice and claim #7 (Strength-building exercise) or subtract the dice and claim #3 (Maintain correct posture and spinal/joint alignment). First player to claim all 13 principles or actions wins the game.  Next time the game is played, players could discuss progress made from the last time in implementing the principles/actions and the benefits they have experienced.
