Cally Trench: Whirlpools and Lifebelts

Cally Trench's homepageCally Trench's Board Games

In Whirlpools and Lifebelts (2016), the aim is to bring your family of five people from their dangerous Homeland to the Island of Safety.

All players are in play simultaneously, and the game is punctuated by sound as players recite appropriate words when a member of their family drowns or reaches safety.

The game was played at Homunculus, an exhibition in response to the humanitarian crisis caused by mass migration, curated by Rekha Sameer at Asylum, London, on 17th January 2016.
