This paper discusses how design games play a role in design anthropology research and serve the operation method of image behavior. By defining the design game in design anthropology, we can solve the following two problems: firstly, pay attention to how to promote group cooperation and help design researchers understand the relationship between image, space and behavior; secondly, this study helps researchers understand the vague role and cultural cognition of stakeholders in participatory design. In addition, this study designs a set of design game cards, through the extraction, collage, and reorganization of film images, and further changes the observation perspective, once again expanding the game to the field of the art design and design anthropology. The ultimate goal of the research is to explore the research methods in the design process and the training of reconstruction logical thinking. In future work, the design education can use game cards as the carrier to reconstruct the cultural cognitive language.
