Barnga - Different perspectives of understanding an organization

A simulation about the fact how a different perspective and approach to processes and situations can generate conflicts.
The game is a card contest. Participants experience communication challenges. Barnga lays a trap for participants – they subconsciously assume that they all play according to the same set of rules. The game is played in complete silence, which amplifies this assumption. Eventually, it turns out that it is impossible to solve any conflict without communication.
