Contents of Day 1
We use our introductory game to get to know each other before playing “Treasure Island” together. A learning game that lets you discover the essentials of game based learning.
In small teams we then start designing a first game with the help of the Way2play business game design process© and the Way2Play business game designer card deck©.
Contents of Day 2
Each participant sets to work with the business game that he/she wishes to produce. Feedback, suggestions for improvement, test situations, etc. are all covered in this day.
At the end of the day the participants will take home far more than a blueprint of their business game. This also serves as homework, e.g. fill out further details of the game so it can be played for the first time on day 3.
Contents of Day 3
Playtime! The final result of all the efforts is presented as well as played. The facilitator and the other participants give feedback and provide suggestions forimprovement one last time. The games grow in robustness. The award for most promising game is handed out and then duly celebrated.
