Join around our virtual table in a discussion exercise. Details in Operator Package.
TABLETOP works better when members and non-members join in, share ideas, understand perspectives, and learn from observations.
How does it work?
In play, you’ll answer a few questions to set the scene across Vancouver. Get messages from all over the city to the EOC. Work together talking about what you need to respond to events and resources that the game throws at you as messages back up.
You get time for at least three 20-minute operating periods. A different member of your team will serve as the decider for each one.
May we enjoy a fun, sociable, and network-building event together.
