Archipelago Competence Game

Evaluating competencies in defining and achieving goals, systems thinking, and client orientation

In Archipelago Competence Game, the player assumes the role of a real estate agent.
But not any real estate agent! Their job is to rent luxury estates on an exotic archipelago somewhere in the Pacific. To succeed, they need to continuously expand their client base, maintain client satisfaction and skillfully tailor their offers.

Clients are demanding. They come from different countries, work different jobs, have different relationship statuses. The titular archipelago is home to rally racers from Monaco, models from Andorra, and Guyanese VIPs with a mysterious past. They all have their individual preferences and understanding these is the key to success.  

Luckily, real estate agents have their methods. Direct contact with clients, market research and marketing are just some of the tools available to the player. None of these many options would be enough, however, without the most important factor: the player’s competencies. To do their job well, they need to excel at defining and achieving goals, systems thinking, and client-orientation. 

Archipelago Competence Game was a finalist at the BEX International Business Learning Games Awards organized by Business Excellence Institute
