Victory in most games is achieved at someone else's expense. Even so-called benevolent games rely on the pleasure of seeing others stumble. The Genki Game is different in that all participants strive toward a shared goal. No matter how competitive players might be, the process of the game is the game. There are virtually no detrimental effects on 'the opponent'; in fact, there is no opponent. The game depends on cooperation, the exercise of skill and elements of luck.
The Genki Game features spiraled teaching points that help students to see and appreciate the systematic connection of rhythm, stress, intonation, projection, vocabulary development, grammatical accuracy and fluency. It also teaches students that success need not necessitate failure in others. As Helen Keller put it, "The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."
