Recently, the Mime Troupe Collective, a well-established performance group in San Francisco, posted on Facebook that Co-opoly is “our new favorite board game!” The Mime troupe used Co-opoly during a workshop on making our society more democratic. We asked for some brief thoughts from participants who played Co-opoly about their experience. Here are some of the wonderful responses:
â€œCoopoly gave insight of what it means to be in a cooperative.â€
â€œUsually there can only be one winner of a board game, so everyone is out for themselves. In Co-opoly everything must be done together, for each other.â€
â€œCoopoly is an informative and engaging game that challenges players to work together to accomplish community goals.â€
â€œI would love to see Coopoly in more schools and leadership workshops.â€
â€œI liked being part of a team instead of competing.â€
â€œIt was exciting to be part of a generous team that was supportive of each other.â€
â€œCoopoly forces lots of decisions that are similar to real-life decisions for coops.â€
Great stuff! It’s so exciting to hear this feedback from people who’ve experienced the game. If you have any testimonials, please send them along to our e-mail.
Don’t forget, we’re also still celebrating Co-opoly’s six-month anniversary. Below are some great “packs” you can purchase to celebrate this milestone!
