Risk&Race - the game

Risk&RACE concept

The Risk&RACE game is a table top board game, designed to induce an entrepreneurial mind-set and introduce players to entrepreneurial decision making and circular economy business models. And of course, it is also fun and challenging, just as a game should be! 

During the game players are entrepreneurs. They buy resources, manage their employees and produce and sell products on the market. External factors affect market demand, price and availability of resources and legislative requirements. Players have opportunities to invest in infrastructure, technological innovation, human resources and business strategies to strengthen their company and remain profitable.

Throughout the game, players will gain insight into:

  • the difference between linear and circular business models
  • circular economy strategies, such as circular product design, recycling and remanufacturing
  • circular business models, such as pay-per-use, take-back systems and life time extension
  • the effects of investments on their business performance and resilience against external events

The player with the strongest company at the end of the game, wins.
