Table 11: Dwell: A Table-top Poverty Simulation Game

In this learning circle, we will showcase a newly developed table-top simulation game, ‘Dwell’ designed in collaboration with the School of Nursing and Health Studies and School of Communication at the University of Miami. This interactive simulation game aims to immerse learners in a simulated community called Dwellville as one of five characters. Each of the five characters have detailed back stories, as well as short term and longer-term goals that each are trying to achieve. Learners navigate Dwellville as their character during a simulated one-month time frame working to achieve their prescribed long and short term goals. Presenters will talk through gameplay, describe the characters, game components, uses for the game, and discuss implementation for educational purposes.
