The cards did not contain kings or queens, diamonds or hearts, but rather data and questions that challenged players to consider the future of Danville and Pittsylvania County.
The game was called “The Big Sort” and members of the community turned out Thursday evening at the Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex to take a peek at the future, as well as enjoy dinner catered by Hunt & Co. of Chatham.
By the end of the evening, participants identified areas that they believed the region was already prepared for, but more that it was not — and with quite a few topics that fell in the middle.
The game was led by Beth Doughty with the Partnership for Regional Prosperity, a civic think tank designed to cultivate strategic transformation of the region.
