General Information about FishBanks Ltd.
I developed the FishBanks game, and I sell each set for $200 plus postage. The
kit includes:
- a professionally-designed box that contains all the materials,
- the game board,
- 50 little wooden boats of varying denominations,
- an 85 page user's manual, which contains extensive information on setting up,
introducing, conducting, and debriefing the game plus detailed instructions
for operating the computer program.
- one CD that contains a 10 minute video of me introducing the game. This video
is presented in two formats, one for the Mac and one for a Windows
machine. It permits you to start a game session without yourself making the
summary of roles, rules, and goals, and
- one CD that contains the game software, various data files, and two Powerpoint
slide sets - one for introducing the game (redundant with the above video)
and one for debriefing the game.
The game’s computer program can be executed on most computers and most
operating systems. It does work on both Macintosh and on Windows machines.
You may not duplicate the game software or manual. However, once you have
purchased the game kit you can use it indefinitely without paying royalties. You
only need to make copies each time of the role description and the decision sheets.
These are distributed to the players, who normally mark them up and make them
unsuitable for future use.
Ideally each session takes 2 hours. But you can split this across two days or have
the participants meet for an optional session. Of you can have them submit one
year of decisions prior to each lecture period, and then you can hand them the
results of that year in the next class. The game works well for groups from five to
30. I have run sessions for over 100 at a time, but it requires parallel oceans and it
is pretty hectic.
You can pay for the game by sending me a check or by authorizing a charge
against some valid credit card. If you want the game, please indicate your
preferred mode of payment and tell me the precise mailing address.
Cordially, Dennis Meadows
