Recreation

Games are fun!

INTRODUCTION

Stone Paper Scissors (formerly Past Perspectives) is not just involved in developing Serious Games. We also have fun developing games with a huge range of themes for recreational audiences. Foremost among the game formats we use is the Megagame – a large multiplayer game style involving anything from 30 to 600 players in the same game and covering all sorts of subjects and lasting anything from half a day (for a smaller group) to several days for larger groups.

The subject matter can range from politics, economics, history, science fiction to heroic fantasy – and because Stone Paper Scissors is also about game design, we are able to craft games to meet the needs of specific groups – one size does not fit all.

Because of the depth and scope of our games – especially megagames – we do not usually sell 'games in a box' (but...see below) – we find it better to come to you with a team of experienced game facilitators and run the game for you. This means even groups with very little game experience can enjoy a Stone Paper Scissors game to the full.

So a facilitated game can be organised for a group of friends – perhaps for a celebration or social event. Or by a company wanting to put on a very different event to celebrate the end of a project. We also have our own programme of Open Public Events so that you (and your friends) may be able to attend a Stone Paper Scissors game at a location near you.

If you are part of a gaming group with a lot of experience in running large games, we do offer the opportunity to purchase Megagame Packs – these are downloadable PDF resource packs – however, 'some assembly is required'.

EXAMPLE GAME

Urban Nightmare explores the higher level decision making during a major, potentially existential, crisis. In the movies and other games the zombie trope generally focusses on the individual or on small groups of survivors, but rarely explores how the world gets to that state. It all just happened and got out of control.

In this megagame we can really look at how things get that far out of control. Or not. In the emerging gameplay of a megagame the outcome is entirely open to the consequences of player decisions and their interactions...
