CoCo Value Add workshop: Out of the box thinking

CoCo Game is a strategic game which requires concentration, teamwork, strategic thinking and thinking out of the usual frameworks. Players are divided into two to three groups, and each group is composed of eight to ten members. Before begging of the game, players have time for reading rules and strategy preparations. After the anticipated reading time, each team can discuss the strategy and tries to find the best way to successfully finish of the game. Each team have available resources such as limited time and finance. Fundraising is key to successfully complete the tasks that are in front of the team. It is important to note that each player needs consensus of all players in the team, so all players must agree with the step they will make as a team. After a predetermined time of play, the facilitators will, on the example of all teams and prominent players, analyse the way they play with a focus on out of the box thinking. Using the available tools will link the theory of out of the box thinking and steps taken within the CoCo Game.
