Our business simulation software can be played by individuals or teams. People can compete or collaborate.
Parallel Competitions place any number of teams in identical starting positions, from which they work to achieve the best outcome.
Whilst players are unable to affect the success of the other teams, the Leaderboard allows them to see how they are progressing compared to others within the same Activity.
Special ‘Head-to-Head’ scenarios allow up to 6 companies to compete directly against each other within the same virtual market, creating the ultimate competitive challenge.
