Other_Games

In recent years, new games have emerged in many places that address our relationship to money or a certain complementary currency in the game. The following list shows a section of the possibilities. The games listed here have been selected mainly for their ideal content and have not been checked for their playing quality.

Unterguggenberger Institute (Austria): A page that lists various games and also proposes a comparative game is listed at the Unterguggenberger-Institut in the archive on a game page “Wir spielen Wirtschaft” . There are also four games with instructions and the whole material ready (in German):

Gradido (Germany): From the money-reform-concept Gradido not only the above Joytopia game was made, but a group of members developed and improved it and added the new name of the network (in German):

Minutospiel (Germany):  The Minutpiele is designed as an introduction to the Minuto currency, but can also represent a good general aspect of money and reciprocity. It is offered at the request of members of the Minuto network as a workshop, but is not directly connected to the network.

  • Minutoportal (International in 10 languages with additional info)

People Money Game (Englisch und Deutsch): A game by John Rogers, the author of the book PeopleMoney (together with Margrit Kennedy and Bernard Lietaer). A workshop game that allows you to experience the exchange in a variety of different money systems (in English).

The Trading Floor Game (English), La Corbeille (French): A game of the organization Valeureux developed by Sibylle Saint Girons and Matthew Slater, which can be played in large groups and illuminates some important money problems, like the debt money or the money distribution (in English).

LETSplay:  The LETS game by LETS co-founder Michael Linton. The game exists in a paper version, as well as an online game. It is very simple, but it takes some experimentation and try to understand its structure. It is not a game with winners or losers. It is a point-and-click introduction to the basic ideas of LETS (simulation). Players buy and sell items (from a list) and watch as the money moves. The game is designed to show how conventional and community money (LETS) differ, how to use both systems in parallel, and what benefits LETS offer (in English).
