The Glass Bead Game: A Co-Creative Idea Game

Dear Players,

I would like to invite you to join us on Mondays 8-10pm London time to play The Glass Bead Game.

The Glass Bead Game is a game of co-creating ideas, of making sense of our world and finding meaning. The gameplay cleverly merges players viewpoint, making our complex world easier to understand in a non-confrontational way.
The simplest form of the game is a spoken improvisation of one minute turns between two players. Players are given a topic from a set of archetopics, and play a total of 10 one minute turns.

Here’s a short video explanation from Erik: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taU1nYatsQM
