Privacy Game – now available to download under a Creative Commons license

A game to communicate and explore privacy and consent issues

The Visualisation and Other Methods of Expression (VOME project) has been working on a card game to support the discusison and teaching of issues of online privacy and consent.

The game is designed for 3-5 players and is playable in about half an hour.

The game emerges from research that the VOME team have been conducting into people’s experiences of privacy and consent online, and how they understand these issues. It also draws upon research into the most effective ways to communicate information on these topics. The aim is to develop alternative conceptual models of online privacy which enable users to make clearer choices about online disclosure.

The game is now available to download and print here. If you would like a higher resolution version, you can access that here via DropBox.

This means we would love you to print the game out, use it and share it, as long as you make sure you attribute it back to us, don’t make money from it, and don’t change it.
