Trading Games

tradingTrading Game is a supercharged game of information gathering, haggling and building trust – an excellent networking activity or conference energiser. Trading Game is a fun, fast-moving and highly immersive business game that explores the skills of negotiation, information gathering and network building. It is particularly effective at bringing people together and breaking down barriers. The game is set in the lawless Wild West town of Dodge City in the 1860’s – a time of great opportunity for the wise and quick-witted, but a place of potential disaster for the unwary and ill-informed. Each team plays a family that arrives in the city with few possessions – horses, beads, gold, leather, money and, most importantly, valuable information. Their goal is to maximise the value of their possessions, by using information they accumulate, as they build relationships and deal with the other families in town.
