Introducing Game-Changers: The Game, a public storytelling board game that blurs the lines between reality and simulation. The stage is set for a clash between Capitalists and Commoners as they battle it out to seize the hottest buzzwords of the new economy. And that’s not all – enter the interactive audience, known as “peerticipants”, who have the power to shape the game’s outcome in real time.
In the game, two teams that embody seemingly opposite discursive poles – for example Capitalism vs. Commonism, Green Growth vs. Degrowth, or Vectoralists vs. the Hacker Class – compete in creating compelling storylines about transformation in order to lay claim to playing fields consisting of real-world “new economy” initiatives and related ideas.
To create these stories, the teams must use the Challenge and Intervention cards available to them at a given time or respond to the cards already linked to particular playing fields. Another, third set of cards, Wildcards, is composed of “external” events which can offer unique windows of opportunity for either team or skew the balance in a number of ways.
Audiences (peerticipants) evaluate the players’ storylines in real time and, in doing so, affect their chance of success. As a peerticipant, you also have the option to contribute prompt cards (prior to or during the event) for the players, making the game a dynamic knowledge commoning and scenario-building tool.
