Getting Started - Game Context

Game Context.

 

At beginning of “play” is issued the challenge – “What will you do [to thrive]? You choose your “game”:

  • You for yourself to thrive,

  • You and your community for your community (If you choose community, then choose whether it is friends, family, affinity group, local community, state, country or region.) to thrive or

  • You and all of us now and future (the Thrive Endeavor) for the world+ so “all thrive forever”.

During “play”, you and all of us face four possible futures [See Graphic - Future for Surviving and Thriving]:

  • Current Path where there is little thriving and survival ends much too soon. Loss.

  • Survive Path where there is little thriving and survival is extended but still ends too soon. Smaller loss.

  • Partial Thrive Path where there is more thriving and survival is extended more but still ends too soon. Partial win.

  • Full Thrive Path where there is high thriving and survival is extended to maximum. Ultimate win.

To avoid losing, get off Current Path. For ultimate win, get on Full Thrive Path where you and all of us survive and thrive today, near and far future, and forever.
 
Strategy is to move from highly vulnerable and not surviving to surviving to highly thriving and has three elements [See Graphic - What will you do [to thrive]?]:

  • Do what increases thriving.

  • Do what prevents more vulnerability and survival threats.

  • Do what reduces vulnerability and ensures survival.

Tactics and actions are determined by you and the other players.
 
Winning is measured by 1) how much vulnerability has been prevented and/or reduced and for how long, 2) has survival been ensured and for how long, and 3) how much thriving has been achieved and for how long.

This is “Thrive!”. You make the “Game” choice:

  • single-player (you for yourself),

  • multiplayer (you and your community for your community; choose whether friends, family, affinity group, local community, state, country, or region), or

  • ultimate massively multiplayer is Thrive Endeavor (you and all of us now and future) for the world+ with ultimate win of “all thrive forever”.

You choose simulation or real-life mode.

 

You and your players engage together on strategy, tactics, logistics (resources), obstacles, internal/external changes, and action.

 

Real-life enemies make or keep people vulnerable and/or stop people from surviving and thriving. Change them. Real-life friends help you survive and thrive. Get, support and keep them


Setting, depending on the game choice is:

  • your immediate environment,

  • your community, or

  • world+ (our world and beyond).

Play map is drawn by players for the play environment:

  • single-player (your immediate environment now and future),

  • multiplayer (your community now and future), and

  • ultimate massively multiplayer (world+ forever).

Exploration, before and during play, is of your ever-changing play environment:

  •  yourself and your immediate internal/external environment,

  • yourself and your community and its internal/external environment,

  • yourself and the world+ and its environment.

Play is real-time - now, near and far future, and forever.


“Wins and losses” are for near and far future. Ultimate win is for forever. Wins and losses are real. 

Play Thrive! in real life in real-time with real people with real consequences. Choose your "game".

  1. What will you do so you thrive?
    • Single Player, Real-time

  2. What will you and your community do so it thrives?

  3. What will Thrive Endeavor (you and all of us now and future) do for world+ so all thrive forever?
    • Ultimate Massively Multiplayer, Real-time, Late Game
    • Ultimate win - “all thrive forever” 

Time to play.

Go to “How to play”.

Or go immediately to your choice of “game” (Game1 - You, Game 2 - Your community, or Game 3 - world+).
