    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).

    I just used this exercise and it was awesome.
    The game did exactly what I wanted.

    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

    I see there is another similar game called ‘Cards for Agility’, which is the opposite of our deck, which was done some time ago. Combining cards might be interesting. You’ll find it at http://lithespeed.com/cards-for-agility/

    Just played this game at the start of a Agile get together it was meant to be an ice breaker but we couldn’t stop playing and we used up the entire meeting. It helped with team building but also a light undertone of learning especially around anti patterns. I would love to get a set professionally made

    I’m thinking I can expand on this for use in retrospectives and learning anti-patterns.

    Just played this game as an ice breaker at the start of a team retrospective. It was very successful and the team had way more fun with it than expected! We also had some learning as the answers sparked dialogue around a couple of terms and references some of us weren’t familiar with, like The Penny Game. We’ll be playing this again!!

    Silvana, I am not able to see any data on the question or rules tabs. I only see the answers with no option to print. There’s dialogue box at top of spreadsheet that says my access has changed. How do I get access?

    Hi Jynene, I have not made any access changes before this, and now have explicitly added your email address to the document.

    I just tested this game out with a group of seven agilists. The concept is sound and we can find uses for it including as an icebreaker, retrospectives, or just for fun.

    We recognize that the cards are Euro-centric by design (and that’s cool). We talked about what cards would come out and what should be added in to make it work in the United States. We also talked through a couple of things that could make it easy for the facilitator to customize (filter) the deck so that certain conversations would naturally arise.

    Nice work game inventors!
