DescriptionEmoji-cize is a fast-paced card game designed to promote empathy and a deeper understanding of different emotions. The game encourages players to develop self-awareness about their own emotions, often drawing on personal experience to enact them. Players also develop empathy by learning to recognize emotions in the facial expression and body language of another person. Emoji-cize has two serious goals: to strengthen understanding of different emotions and to encourage players to develop and practice empathy.
