Butterfly Fields

A social game for large-scale parties and events that scales down for initiate groups

"Butterfly Fields" is an accessible, scalable, social game with two rulesets for 4-10 and 15-60 players that encourages players to meet and mingle in social situations. Originally developed for my birthday party, the positive response of guests that made new connections and learned more about their existing friends convinced me to continue iterating. The game contains secret challenges, fun icebreakers, and intimate questions to allow players to cut loose, be silly, be vulnerable, and grow closer. Combine that with the ability for players to join and leave at any time with no penalty, and you have the recipe for an incredible party where everyone gets to be social butterfly and pollinate lasting connections.
