This group worked to create a demo board game. It was an evolution from the known Monopoly game to Commonspoly; from the emblem of capitalist economy to a new design of resources management. With the Monopoly we learnt the art of financial speculation, the competition and accumulation. Instead with the Commonspoly they tried to imagine a cooperative and redistributional model of resources management. The result was an operative game, which game board you can see at the following picture.
