Event Over

Bear and His Boy

By Kurt Bieg



Bear and His Boy

Bear and His Boy is a physical board game where two people engage in an unhealthy co-dependency with each other. The game exposes players to the idea that abusive relationships don’t simply happen, they start as mutually beneficial, but slowly over time, the cost of being in that relationship and benefits that initially came from it change. A Bear and His Boy encourages people to learn about this slippery slope.
