LetzPlay is a process of discovery where players can quickly and easily see and understand the key ideas of community currencies, and how they differ from those of conventional money.

It’s not a game about winning or losing – indeed, it’s not a competition at all. It’s just a point-and-click introduction to the elementary ideas.

Players buy and sell game items (from a list – no thinking required) and watch how the money moves. As the money comes and goes, the game shows you:

  • how conventional and community money are different,

  • what comes from that difference,

  • the value of using both forms of money, and

    – the big prize –

  • how to use community money systems without risk.

Cabot,

It will likely be at Jordan's place near you - just confirming, as his home may be too small if we get a good response. Will know for sure in a day of two.

Should be a pretty good meeting.
