Here's a bit of creativity coming from the World Bank...
The World Bank Institute (WBI) sponsored a worldwide selection of game design proposals titled “Designing and Developing an Educational Game on Street Addressing” on November 2006 and invited game inventors/game developers, planners, instructional designers from around world to submit game design proposals. Over 80 designers registered their interest to participate in this competition of which 35 submitted game design prototypes on February 28, 2007. A group of World Bank staff members from different professional backgrounds play tested all 35 games and short-listed 6 finalists to proceed to the final stages of judging by a panel consisting of subject experts and a game developer.
Two game designs 1) I Need A Sign (by Ariel Seoanefrom Uruguay), and 2) URBS & CIVITAS (by John Balucifrom USA), were selected as the winners. The board games were scheduled to be produced July-August 2007. The games will be play-tested in Africa and Latin America to solicit feedback from practitioners in the field before WBI proceeds with producing the disseminating the games more widely.
