So we planned a demo day. The idea was to get a group of people out to play our Property Trading Game and get some fun and networking thrown in too. The original invite is here so feel free to read it.
The demo day was yesterday and 8 brave souls duly turned up in London without much idea of what the day would hold and thanks to them all for playing with such enthusiasm and commitment.
Without going into step by step detail the day seemed to really work – taking a group of people some of whom knew each other in real life, some through Twitter and some not at all and letting them play was such a great experience and one dare we say it we may repeat. We finished at 4.15pm in a pub in the West End and when dinner finished at 7pm people were still talking about the day and the game which has to be said left smiles on faces.
Some great feedback for us on the game itself, how we could sell it better and differently and hopefully a few interested parties who can now see how a product like our Property Trading Game could fit into what they do but all in all a great fun day which left people seemingly knackered but energised. We think that’s job done!
Some photos from the ‘car’ team below, ‘boot’ team to follow when someone sends them over
The car team do their “inventive team picture” (we think they were inventing bikes)
Next came the artistic team picture (spot the ass)
and not forgetting a picture of the team in a phone box (business cards were NOT collected!)
And as for the ‘boot’ team, they crammed into a phone box too….
Attempted an artistic picture (not sure if they saw no evil!!)
and even accosted a celebrity for 300 points (although we may need reminded who he is…)
One of the participants (@Changecontinuum) has written 4 blog posts following his reflections on the day that can be found here:
