Anyone can ‘play’ at making better cities

One Christmas game that did not make it into our house this year, but sparked my interest when I read about it, was a computerised role play which casts participants as urban designers (of all people).

In City Rain, players act as professionals who ‘restructure cities’, making them environmentally friendly, economically resilient places before they are blacklisted by global authorities. Certainly sounds different; and some bloggers have already written on the idea.

I’ll be interested to see if any colleagues are talking about it after the Christmas break.
