Intercultural Minefield, originally a tabletop game now available online, 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.

Available in English, French and German

This game is a “real life experience” reminding us that to be successful in international business, we must know about other cultures.

This game allows us to see different angles of the learning process in the intercultural field, as well as risks that are sometimes taken unwittingly. Thank you for the opportunity to discover this, Maria.

The Intercultural Minefield game is a crafty , clever and beautifully designed intercultural game which can bring quite a lot of fun and colour to your online intercultural training sessions. When stepping on the mines, the players will realise in a playful way that, while there are possible ways of dealing with tricky situations in international business encounters, most of the times there is not just one possible way of handling them. And, last but not least, the game will show the participants that, even when wé are culturally competent,, cultural incidents can still occur at all times when we don’t watch out or least expect it.
