This is Hello.
It's a game about living and dying and what matters most to each of us.
When you play, you'll have a conversation about the things thatare important to you.
And you'll get to hearabout what is important to the people you care about.
Hello is simple to learnand can be played by anyone.
In this video, we're going toshow you how to play Hello.
Let's start by setting up the game.
Each player starts witha Questions booklet, a pen, and an equal numberof these blue chips.
These are called Thank-You Chips, and we'll show you howthey're used in a moment.
Before you begin to play, flip a coin and hide it under the scoring card.
Make sure that none of the players see whether this coin is heads up or tails up.
At the end of the game, you'll reveal this coin.
If it is tails up, theplayer with the fewest Thank-You Chips will be the winner.
If it is heads up, theplayer with the most Thank-You Chips will win.
If you're playing Hello at an event, the host will flip acoin for the whole room, so you don't need toflip one at each table.
Here's how Thank-You Chips work.
At any time during the game, if someone does or sayssomething that you appreciate, give them a chip.
You can give a chip for any reason, and you can explain whyyou're giving a chip to another player or youcan just give them a chip and leave it at that.
If someone gives you a Thank-YouChip, add it to your stack.
The rules of Hello are simple.
Rule number one, and thisis the most important rule, is to listen.
Rule number two, you can pass on any turn if you don't wanna sharethe answer you write down.
Rule number three, thereare no wrong answers.
Rule number four, you canchange your answer at any time, even after a turn has passed.
You can even come back andchange your answer next week or in a month, or thenext time you play Hello.
Rule number five, you can givea Thank-You Chip to anyone, at any time during the game.
And if you work in healthcare, we have a bonus rule for you.
Rule number six, leave yourcredentials at the door.
Don't worry about how yourpatients or anyone else might play this game, just play as yourself.
Now, let's see how oneturn of Hello is played.
At the start of a turn, everyone opens their Questionsbooklet to the same question.
You'll go in order andstart with question one.
One player reads the question out loud.
After the question is read, each player silently writestheir answer to the question in their Questions booklet.
When you're done writing, put your pen down.
This is the signal to other players that you are done with your answer.
Stay silent until all playershave put their pens down.
Then, the player who read the question reads their own answer out loud, or they can choose to pass.
Proceed clockwise, with each person either reading their answer or passing.
Once everyone has had achance to read their answer, you can discuss youranswers if you'd like.
Then, turn to the nextquestion in your booklet.
Any player can read thenext question out loud to start the next turn.
And that's how you play Hello.
Now, we'll show you how to end the game.
There are several waysto end a game of Hello, but the easiest is just to choose how long you want to play beforeyou start the game.
When time is up, finishthe question you're on and then count your chips.
Then, turn over thescoring card to find out who the winner is.
If the coin is tails up, theplayer with the fewest chips is the winner.
If it is heads up, the playerwith the most chips has won.
In the event of a tie, two or more players can win a game of Hello.
You can play Hello over and over again.
Your answers willprobably evolve and change and you'll learn new things about yourself and other players.
