The Business Game - free trial

Kevin Corti recently offered access to his Business Game to the EdNA discussion forum on eLearning Games.

I contacted Kevin to see if we could have access to the Game for the PFP Network Group.

His agreement comes with one condition:
"Sure, go ahead. Can I ask one thing however? Could you try to get as many people that use it to perhaps drop us a line with their thoughts, observations etc. They can be as open and harsh as they like. We a’re planning to create a number of variations of this game to cover SME/start-up training, Intro to Finance, General business awareness (for employees in larger enterprises) and an introduction to marketing. Feedback from your network now could help us make sure that the GBL we create is as good as it possibly can be."

The game, titled "The Business", was designed to help teachers in the UK to deliver enterprise education to, in the main, 14-16 year olds.

The game is available from:

To access the game simply visit the site and click on "user login' and then, when the login page loads, enter the following access code:

The only tech requirement is that your PC has the Macromedia Flash player 7 at minimum. The site will detect if this is not the case and, if not, send you off to Macromedia to download it.

The web site carries a walk through, overview etc and you can download the 40-page Teachers Guide.
