We're pleased to report that the 3rd printing of Group Works is now complete and the new shipment of decks has arrived. We've cleared last month's small number of back orders and are now again promptly shipping decks as orders come in. Thanks for your patience during the changeover.
Changes to the deck from the 2nd printing are minimal. The most visible updates are: The card numbers are a bit larger and easier to read, the box color is darker for better contrast, and the booklet accompanying the deck has been fully updated with a more contemporary list of "how to use the deck" activities. The price remains unchanged.
This might be a good time to think about buying a deck for your favourite facilitator as a holiday gift. We provide a gift card option at time of order.
And thanks to all those who suggested ideas for changes for this printing. While we decided to go with very few changes this time (partly due to receiving some large orders right as stock was running low), we did consider each idea, and may reconsider some next time around. In the meantime, we plan to re-open potential pattern proposal drafting on the website; we'll make a separate announcement when that functionality has been activated.
Cheers to the thousands of people that have downloaded or bought a deck and are using it in their practices and organizations. We hear stories of the deck's use that come from all over the world, and we're delighted to be helping people with the challenging and vitally important work of group process facilitation. We'd love to hear your story; contact us via the website or any of us personally.
