Cards Against Agility

Stay Updated: Posts | Comments   Follow us on Twitter

Cards Against Agility is based on the game Cards Against Humanity,
where the former was developed at the Play 4 Agile event in Germany in February 2017.

Purpose:
either to develop awareness or poke fun at Agile practices, as the questions and answers can be rather irreverent. As the original game states: “Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Unlike most of the party games you’ve played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.”

Players: 4-8 (maybe more?)

How to Play:

  1. Distribute 10 answer-cards (white) to each player.
  2. In each round, one player (Questioner) draws a card from QUESTIONS (black) pile, and places it on the table face up.
  3. Everyone else answers with their funniest answer (white card).
  4. Questioner decides the winning card.
  5. Winner keeps the question card, others draw a new answer cards from the pile.
  6. Repeat from 2 until a player exhausts all their answer cards (or a timebox is reached). Winner is player who won the most answer cards.
  7. In case of “Pick 2 cards” players draw one more answer card before placing their answers to the question. In case of “Pick 3″ playes draw 2 more cards before playing.

Download and print the Cards Against Agility cards, both the questions and answers. Cut them up. Throw into two hats/bowls, start playing.

Co-creators:
Daniel Hommel, Silvana Wasitova, Bruce Scharlau, Nils Bernert, Edward Dahllöf.

    What is the learning objective here or is this an ice breaker?

    Maybe add a part after an answer card is thrown to define (in serious terms) the answer (and difficulties with it, misunderstandings, how it helped, or more).

    Charles – objectives are 1) to have fun 2) to learn, or expand one’s knowledge – as often people explain their selected answer. Ultimately, the agilists players take themselves just a wee bit less seriously :) .

    Peter, tell us your intentions, and how they were achieved, thanks!

    Charles, I’m having trouble printing the cards. I keep getting an “access denied” error. Also, there’re no question cards.

    Can you help me out?

    Thanks.

    Hi Thad, the cards are accessible by all for printing. If issues, send me your email address and I will add you to the Google docs.

    The Questions are on a separate Tab in the same file
