Co-opoly Games

An old idea for a new economy

In the age of unemployment, downsizing, outsourcing, and growing job dissatisfaction, people all around the nation are turning to an old idea that addresses the sometimes harsh realities of our new economy - worker cooperatives. Learn more about worker cooperatives at these free workshops throughout September.


Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives is a creative and exciting educational game designed for the growing worker cooperative movement. While games have been proven to be unique resources that shape the way people learn, work, and interact with one another, explained Ms. Perkins, Co-opoly is more than just a board game. It is an innovative way for aspiring and existing cooperators, as well as other interested parties, to learn about co-ops and to practice cooperation. People who have played the game call it "fun and engaging" as well as "a great teaching tool about how to build and sustain" cooperatives.
