Gamestorming Card Deck iPhone app

Gamestorming iPhone app

The Gamestorming Card Deck is drawn from the GoGamestorm.com blog, the companion website to ‘Gamestorming: A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers’ by Dave Gray, Sunni Brown, and Dave Macanufo. The cards are frequently updated and will help you learn the fundamentals of visual language, how to illuminate complexities by mapping the big picture and how to use improvisation and games to innovate and solve real problems and help you feel more confident about using visualization in meetings.

The cards in this deck show you not only how to play β€” with images and instructions on both sides of the cards β€” but how to organize the games into favorites and β€˜agendas’ for your meeting in the form of stacks. The stacks can be played by swiping through each of the cards as you proceed through your meeting or brainstorming session.

Here’s how it works:

Gamestorming iPhone app

After you’ve downloaded the app, click on the app icon to open the app.

You’ll see a deck of cards that you can scroll through, just like you can scroll through apps. Each card represents a game from the Games Wiki. (The app syncs with the wiki, so whenever we add new games to the wiki you can add them to your app by going to the settings menu and clicking “refresh.”). Tap a card to open that card.

You’ll see the large version of the card. If you tap the little dog-ear to the lower right the card will flip over and you can read the instructions for that game on the back of the card.

The instructions are exactly what you would see in the book or on the Games Wiki. You can scroll down to read the whole card.

There’s also a stacks menu, where you can create a stack by adding cards.

Once you have a stack, you can click “edit” to rearrange the games in the stack. Create as many stacks as you want. For example you might create one stack for a brainstorming meeting, one for a company retreat, and another for your weekly status meeting. When it’s time for the meeting just open the stack and you can quickly flip through the games in that stack.

Let the games begin!

    Like your app! But the design is really old-fashioned and tailored to an iphone 4 running IOS 6. Even on the iphone 5 some parts of the screen canvas are just blank πŸ™

    Are there plans for an update that addreses this?

    We have not been able to keep up with the iOS upgrades and there was not enough activity to justify further development. So the app is no longer available. Sorry!
