Another Open Game Session was held in Bengaluru on 11th May. 13 participants from very diverse backgrounds played the game on two tables with two recently arrived new game boards. It was the first time the newly trained game leaders in the India Network, Neeti Tandon and Anubhav Khanduja were leading the session. While Anubhav introduced the rules of the game to the participants, Neeti facilitated the final debrief session once both tables had their respective dialogue sessions.
The game session itself lasted for the usual 75 minutes, on the rooftop terrace of Arghyam, a non-profit focusing on water management research in India. Like every other session, this session didn’t fail to storm us with surprises either. We came across some unique moves, never heard arguments, different scenarios and unique dynamics across both the tables. The debrief session was equally exciting. Many questions were asked, sentiments were put forward and diverse views were voiced, which lead to really insightful discussions and new friendships. All in all a great first session for the new game leaders and hopefully many more to come in the months ahead.
