2 New Podcast Episodes – Our Methods

Oklqgsct8qs 2 New Podcast Episodes 8211 Our Methods

I wanted to share these two podcast episodes in one post as they cover the same topic but from both our perspectives. The first episode “The Method to Andrzej’s Madness” discusses my approach to designing gamification, stepping you through my Gamification Design Framework (available here 😉 )

In the second episode, for the first time ever, Roman talks you through his gamification design phases and micro phases.

Both methods have a lot of cross-over and cover an enormous amount of design ground for gamification and behaviour change programmes. Read More ...

Teaching the Value of Money with Games

371924 Teaching the Value of Money with Games

Today I am literally ripping a transcription out of one of our recent blogs – all about how I used Roblox to help get my daughter to understand the value of money. The podcast in question can be found here – https://anchor.fm/dashboard/episode/e1hr3lp

Lots of people have used gamification around banking and around money, but it’s always about how to save, how to invest, and how to essentially make sure banks have more of your money. It’s safe to say that most banks when they release something about gamifying finances, it’s about learning how to put more money in a bank and how to live off that money. Read More ...

The RAMP to Fun

RAMP to Fun The RAMP to Fun

A while back I started talking about FUN again. In that post I mentioned the RAMP to Fun, but never actually posted it! So here it is in full PowerPoint diagram glory 😀

This is obviously based on my RAMP, but also on some research I did a long time ago on what people find fun.

The idea is that you need to include elements, mechanics and concepts that people will find fun – even if these do not look fun to you on the surface. As they all hook into core intrinsic motivators – some will find them fun! The more you can link together and embed – in a way that is sympathetic and sensible to the design, the better.

Love, Death, Taxes and Gamification: Episode 4 of The Andrzej & Roman Show

Spot Love Death Taxes and Gamification Episode 4 of The Andrzej 038 Roman Show

Man, episode 4 was a lot of fun to record! Roman and I discussed our dream gamification projects. He wants to take on the Tax system in some really cool ways – some that could definitely work as well! I want to work on a project that uses games to teach the value of money to kids – not how to save, but how to appreciate money. I spoke about my own efforts with Roblox and my kids.

Then we discussed some of the things we definitely would not try to gamify – Funerals being one of them. This led to some fun, if dark, conversations about what a gamified funeral might look like… Read More ...
