The Impact Game competition – we have a winner!
Since our Impact Game went on general sale, we have been delighted by the number of institutions who have bought copies both within the UK and beyond.
We launched a competition to celebrate the release of the game in August (and to gain some wider feedback from players!). We asked you to suggest new questions or ideas to improve game play and would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the Catherine Armitstead of the University of Worcester who devised a new question for the cards. She is looking forward to choosing her reward with her £20 Amazon voucher prize.
And the winning question was ….. *drumroll*…… *opens gold envelope*…..
Q. True or false: You can make an interlibrary loan request for up to three articles from any one journal issue.
A. False: You can only copy/request one article from any one journal issue, according to copyright legislation.
We will add this question to the next version of the game. As it follows the instruction format of some questions within the game, we have written a new instruction to complement it as well:
Give this card to the player who requested an interlibrary loan most recently. They’ll read you the question on the other side of this card.
Additionally, we wanted to note some great feedback from our European friends at the University of Amsterdam and Linköping University in Sweden, which we’ll incorporate into future versions. They had to remove some of the cards from the pack as our questions were too UK-specific (mainly about the REF) so we will consider ways to improve the international transferability of the game. Options might be to badge these cards in some way so they’re easily removed, or create a separate European version of the game or card set. To see all the questions in the current game, please visit our spreadsheet.
Linköping also commented that the counters were too alike to keep track of. This chimes with our own experience of playing the game, so future versions will include differentiated counters and colours.
And remember, if you haven’t ordered your copy yet, you can buy it from the Ivory Game Maker site. It’s under £50 and makes a great Christmas present! 😉
Thank you to everyone who took part in our competition and who gave us feedback. Happy game play!
