Deepti and Poornima coordinated with Ele Jansen of Reboot Stories to create a story led board game.
Ele's idea was to draw on cards and a game board, which lead people through the steps to find a solution to a shared problem.
As Ele puts it, "Imagine a neighborhood constantly jammed with traffic. Councils have tried and failed to tackle it, urban planners have given up, other authorities shun responsibility. What if the answer can be found in a simple game that can be applied to any problem? A fun game that can be downloaded and printed at home, a collaborative game that ignites the greatest power we all have: our imaginence (imagination + intelligence). Could local solutions created by friends and neighbors trigger landslide change?"
The game premiered at the Vivid Sydney 2013 event, where groups came together to arrive at a solution for public housing.
