Roleplaying at Work: The Game

As our group task we decided to make a game about different problems in the workplace. By playing this game you can practice your dialogue and problem-solving skills. The four characters of the game are based on Kantor´s four-player system.

In the game the players have to solve workplace problems from the perspective of the characters that has been assigned to them. The typical workplace problems are described on the problem cards that are randomly distributed to the groups.

Even if the task of the game is to solve the problems, the overall aim of the game is to create a constructive dialogue and engage people in to the discussion. The game is also about experiencing other persons´ ideas and perspectives. The game is about voicing and listening to other people’s opinions rather than judgement and assumption.

Dialogue was an essential part of creating the game. Twenty-seven people from many different cultural and academic backgrounds were involved in creating this game.

We had fun making the game and we hope you have fun playing it!
