@Stake: An Exciting Role-Playing Simulation!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

@Stake is a role-playing and tabletop card game that fosters democracy, empathy, and creative problem solving for civic issues. Planning issues often involve conflicting interests coupled with deep resentments and community divides. Building a new highway, for example, is seldom only a question of the highway's design, but the destiny of the land, the community, and individual residents.

@Stake has traveled across the United States from the UNDP to healthcare to participatory budgeting to democracy conferences to help leading decisionmakers get to know one another and discuss tough issues.
