As they play the game, kids move through towns that represent the skills taught in the game, such as Fairhaven and Conversation City. On the way, players earn tokens with pictures of friends on them.

Using humor appropriately in social situations.
Conversing with others expressing yourself and listening skills.
Dealing with conflicts.
Joining and participating in groups.
Showing respect and fairness.
