DATOPOLIS: The Open Data Board Game


Saturday & Sunday all day, The Nook

Be one of the first in Perth to play Datopolis, a board game about building services, websites, devices, apps and research, which uses closed and open data. Datapolis is set in a town called Sheridan, which is gradually declining as shops close, teachers quit, hedgehogs go extinct and pollution rises. Players build tools to help make Sheridan a healthier, wealthier, happier place to live.

This game was designed and developed by Ellen Broad and Jeni Tennison at the Open Data Institute, with the graphic design by Chris Wells from FolkLabs.
