As much as 40 percent of the top Global 1000 corporations have found the benefits that gamification has towards staff learning:
1. Ensure retention of learning
2. Inspire team collaboration
3. Energize individual motivation
The Nerd Herd Game consists of a playing card deck, game pieces, and two game boards (a simple board game for fast, under one hour play and the other that offers a little more challenging). The design of the game is based on grouping into teams to encourage collaboration and spirited competition.
The Nerd Herd Game app gives you the ability to create your own questions or tasks. When a team picks a card, The Nerd Herd Game app is used to bring up the next question to ask (or task the team has to perform). If the team responds with the correct answer, they move their game piece forward.
The first team to reach the D-U-N-N ("done" for non-Southerners) wins!
If you are a consultant, use The Nerd Herd Game to test your client's knowledge after an onsite engagement or workshop. If you have a chain of espresso houses, The Nerd Herd Game could be used to test baristas' understanding of pulling shots, handling customers, and coffee bean basics. And as a human resources professional, use The Nerd Herd Game to test employees on changes in benefits, corporate culture, and company strategy.
