Intercultural Minefield

Intercultural Minefield is a game that invites players to become global start-uppers with a start-up budget of 1.000.000 eurics.  As they “walk across” the intercultural “minefield”, they will make money by either being culturally agile or by just being lucky, otherwise they run a risk of being “blown up” by a “cultural mine”… Unless there is an “intercultural consultant” around! Players can earn big money, they can lose everything or even run into debt.

The learning outcome of the game is un all-round familiarity with the field of intercultural business communications, based on the ample examples of real-life cases and situations that may happen in different cultures.

This game is perfect for all kinds of Intercultural Educators to run for Business students as well as for high-school and university students.

The game can fabulously serve both as a teaching tool and as a selling point for a client you would like to persuade to buy your training. You’ll pay it back really fast! 

Available in English and in French, in offline and in online versions.

Intercultural Minefield is good to:

  • let students feel how painful it is to lose time and money because of cultural blunders
  • make them realize it does not require much investment to study intercultural competence
  • find out that relying on just luck is not a good strategy in international business
  • to be used as a selling point when you negotiate to sell your training to a corporate company (just play it with the decision maker!)
  • to be used at any kind of presentations of your services
  • it is still perfect to be used at an intercultural training as well!
