Material: Cardstock

  • This game features the whimsical artwork and quirky humor of the New York Times Bestselling creator of the Awkward Yeti, the popular Heart and Brain franchise.
  • The game board is designed to look like a human brain, culminating in the dreaded Anxiety Spiral. The board features Panic Rooms and Retreat areas where players can avoid further advancement for 2 turns.
  • To play, choose an Anxious Character game piece who will advance towards the Anxiety Spiral, or away from it depending on the cards played.
  • Pull the card “accidentally post something private online”? Advance 6 spaces towards the Anxiety Spiral. Maybe your next card will encourage you to “get a massage” and move back 2 spaces towards the Peaceful Oasis.
  • The last player to reach the Anxiety Spiral is the winner!
  • Appropriate for ages 8+, Anxiety Attack! Is a fun and non-threatening way to facilitate conversation about emotional health and mindfulness.
  • Great for families with angsty young people, and a big hit with counselors and therapists.

How To Play

Each player is dealt 5 cards and starts by placing their anxious character game piece in the Peaceful Oasis.


Play Trigger Cards on your opponents to propel them forward toward the Anxiety Spiral.  Play Defuse Cards and Instant Cards to slow your progression and defend yourself from heightening anxiety.

Misery loves company!

Once in Anxiety Spiral, swap your Anxious character game piece for the Misery version.  Now if you land on your opponent's space they move directly to the Anxiety Spiral.  Misery sure does love company!

How to win

Be the last person to avoid the Anxiety Spiral and win the game!
