Character amnesia is a phenomenon whereby experienced speakers of some East Asian languages forget how to write Chinese characters previously well known to them. As modern technology develops, handwriting has gradually substituted by typing on electronic devices. Character amnesia now becomes a widespread problem for young generations. By breaking down Chinese characters and asked players to reassemble them, the Amnesia board game is designed to help reduce the symptom of character amnesia.
