Board games

Board games are usually based on beating opposing players in terms of counters, winning position or points, but can also be used as a means of structuring dialogue, enabling negotiations and visualizing possible future scenarios.

The Park Game involves a park game board and a number of game pieces, with or without visual content. The pieces with visual content are categorized according to different topics of association, whereas the rest act as 'post-it' -like cards.

In groups, the players collectively define each piece's place on the board, and the game ends when the whole board has been filled. Through discussions, cooperation and strategical decisions, the numerous fragmented and individual demands are transformed into a coherent representation of wishes and needs: a scenario for a future (urban) development.
