Gamestorming, How To Turn Your Next Meeting into a Creative Problem-Solving Getup

Of late I have been reading the book Gamestorming. It is a primer on turning meetings, workshops and the like into ‘brain-storming game-like situations’ where parameters are laid, challenges are given, and creative ideas bubble to the surface for all to enjoy.

You can see a preview of the book here: Gamestorming: A playbook for innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers (Google eBooks).

So far I’d say it’s been a good read. The first three chapters focus on aspects of games and how they work from a fundamental level. The subsequent chapters list various games to try. Here’s a bit from one of the early chapters.
