Facebook: The Board Game (Is It Better Than The Real Thing?)
In an attempt to break free from digital bondage, Pat C. Klein designed a Facebook board game, hoping that it will encourage young people to meet up with friends and engage with one another in person. In some ways, Pat’s idea is quite interesting; and if you’ve been a social pariah so long that you’ve forgotten how to interact with others, well, this could be your lifeline.
As you can see, the game is pretty much based on Monopoly, with Like and Status cards up for grabs. When you land on “Status”, you’ll need to take a Status card which will instruct you to share something about yourself, for instance, “Tell people about something exciting you have planned for the week.”
Do you reckon it will work?
