Choices is one of three games we offer for teenagers aged 13 and older. The others are Crossroads: Options and Crossroads: New Decisions. Although players can benefit from playing either game, we recommend beginning with New Decisions.
In Crossroads Choices, players face six scenarios where they need to select the correct answer to get through the game while earning virtual money in each module that can be spent on clothing, furniture, and more.
Crossroads: choices covers six topics
- Safety in a home party
- Needles on the playground
- Domestic Violence
- Safety Bag
- Motivational Interviewing
- Assessment: Depression and ACES
