A card game for 12 Steppers


A cross between Uno, Skipbo and Mille Bornes.

The object of the game is to get to Step 12 first.  BUT there are obstacles like the Self-Will cards that can carry you back to step 3.

  ON THE OTHER HAND there are Spiritual Toolkit cards that allow you to steal steps from other players..

Stinkin thinkin cards make you lose your turn and everyone is Happy when they draw a Happy Joyous and Free Card.  (they’re wild). 

 Can be pretty exciting especially when someone is close and then they get sent back to 3 Or when you get to steal their step!

A post from The Angry Sober Dude

“Twenty years, one day at a time.

In sobriety I was kicked out of college, lost my drivers license for a year, fired, broke and in debt, severely depressed(and wanting OUT) and of course the biggie which was loosing my twin sons at 28 weeks due to TTTS.

In sobriety I graduated from college, met my wife in AA, got a great job, moved around the country and met some great sober people (including this guy who goes to the Bowers Park meeting) and of course the biggie which was the birth of my two daughters who are now 5 and 8 years old.

Growing up in my house sucked, my dad was violent and an addict and my mother was a punching bag who always wanted to “clean” my room.

When I walked into AA people put their hand out to me and saved my life.

DO IT! Every time you see someone new walk in the door make sure you say hi. IT SAVED MY LIFE!

Mike B. wherever you are thank you. You appointed yourself my sponsor and took me to meetings and kept me alive.

Bill R. I know where you are but thank you anyway. I shared the most humiliating and shameful things in my fourth step and all I got back from you was love. You are my example of how a man in AA should be.

I am proof that this program works thanks to people like you.

Thank you.”
