22 stamps for a dialogue about happiness

22 stamps for a dialogue about happiness is a game with few rules for accompanying meals. It was created to be used as an icebreaker to power a dialogue between two participants. It intends to create a space for reflection and criticism for complex subjects, without simplifying notions or concepts. It came from reading a book by Saint Augustine - Dialogues on Happiness and from his meetings with family and friends, at mealtime, to talk about happiness. According to Augustine, happiness is in moderation and temperance. The title and format enchanted me. Not so much the content. Even so, I use the title to create a game. 3 boxes have been produced, each with 22 stamps.
Happiness as an emotion or state is vague and indefinite. Certainty is only found in desire and in its search.
