As Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters, theres nothing we like better than a bit of gamification. What's better than getting a bunch of people round a table and exploring agile concepts with lego and postits? But, with working remotely rapidly becoming the new normal, how can we do this without it being a clunky, confusing, and ultimately disengaging experience.
During lockdown, we've been exploring this idea and have built a number of games, activities and simulations at http://agilesimulations.co.uk. At this meetup, we're going to play one as an example; Matt Philip's No Estimates game. This is a good way to see what can be achieved in a remote workshop, but also a great way to really explore sources of variation in estimation while having fun at the same time.
