Things to consider

  • You can signal to people to find out who’s up for playing. It can be uncomfortable to begin with, but that’s how we find playmates.
  • It’s possible to make joy a core value of your organisation, even at a large scale.
  • Things are more memorable when we play with them, physically.
  • The things we make embed themselves in our memory.
  • We’re built for togetherness.
