PM Galaxy: A Project Management Board Game
An innovative tool for the next generation of training sessions

The world around us is in continuous change:
We no longer have the time or the patience to do things ‘the old way’ and it has become extremely difficult to maintain someone’s attention, let alone get them interested in the first place.
Nowadays, no matter what industry we work in, our main focus is to deliver the information or our products and services as quickly as possible, in the most user-friendly way imaginable, while generating a fun and engaging experience for our customers. This lead to the arrival of gamification, serious games, game-based learning and other similar concepts and companies have started revolutionizing the way they work, learn and connect with their customers.
Teachers are also changing the way they deliver their courses and trainers have found a new valuable tool to engage their course participants. With this scenario in mind, we went out and created PM Galaxy®: A Project Management Board Game.
PM Galaxy® is the very first Project Management Board Game from Romania:
It is intended for project management trainers and consultants, project managers and team members. Basically, for all those involved in projects who want to improve their project management knowledge while having a great time together with their team!
Based on the Project Management Institute (PMI) standards, we built PM Galaxy® as a tool which covers both the fun part (the secret ingredient of building a team) and the educational part as well. The game is meant to help players learn and remember key concepts of project management and best practices in the field, by testing their knowledge and rewarding them for their efforts in a fun and engaging way.
Players aka Project Managers decide which project they want to coordinate and struggle to successfully manage it through all 5 stages of a project’s lifecycle by answering quizzes, gathering resources, overcoming challenges and collaborating with each other.
PM Galaxy® on Kickstarter:
In order to bring this awesome learning and teaching tool to you, we put the game on Kickstarter. If you believe in the concept of Learning by Having Fun, want to build an awesome project team or add more fun to your training sessions, we encourage you to check out our Kickstarter campaign and help us deliver this tool to you.
