The Democracy Game Box

DBOXLogo miniThe Democracy Game Box (D-Box) includes eight printable analogue games, two of which are also available in a digital version. These games are an excellent way to build a bridge between theory and practice. They allow practitioners to create a stimulating and inclusive learning atmosphere and encourage learners to actively engage and interact with others.

The games are diverse in terms of duration and complexity. The alphabetical order below also approximately reflects the order of duration and complexity (starting with shorter duration and simpler game mechanics). Shorter and simpler does not mean less meaningful and complex in terms of democracy learning targets!
