Project Title Stack Attack: An InterCreActive Ice-Breaker Game
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Stack Attack comes in 45 wooden blocks with imprinted ice-breaker question strips. The game enables players to not only stack up the blocks but also to form close bonds with other players by creating a shared experience in an engagingly fun way. Players take turns to remove a block then answer questions given on the block before stacking it up crossway on the top layer of the block. The game ends when the tower of blocks topples down. What makes this game unique is the combination of InterCreActive element – Interactive, Creative, Active platforms to motivate and enhance players’ engagement which allows the players to strategize, consider alternatives and think flexibly without the risk of failure. The various interesting questions give players the opportunity to enhance their proficiency and flexibility in using the language, while the individual words (every side of the blocks) are carefully selected from the Oxford 3000 Wordlist - words which are deemed imperative in English language learning because of its importance and usefulness. Part of the novelty lies in the combination of engaging tasks in the form of questions and the element of games in optimizing maximum participation to motivate players’ engagement. It can also be utilized as an ice-breaker tool, team-building activity and additional English learning apparatus in educational institutions and even corporate organisations. The feasibility of using wooden blocks gives an estimation for affordable market platform for the game. It is also seen as a key factor for successful commercialization as there are no block-stacking games in the market that puts personal meaning, interest as well as challenge together in a game for optimal brain activation. As players struggle to balance the blocks from toppling down, they also attempt to be answer the task in a stress-free environment by simply - Push in, pull out, speak out, stack up!
