Evaluate Training Games With This Checklist

Here's a 10-item evaluation checklist that I first constructed 15 years ago, based on an analysis of outstanding training games nominated by experienced trainers and facilitators. I have updated the checklist repeatedly. Not all 10 items in this checklist will be relevant to a specific game. For example, if a game does not involve a game board or cards, then Item 5 is does not apply to this situation. Depending on the training objective and the characteristics of the participants, different items may be more relevant than the others. Use the checklist to choose among different training games and activities. Also use it to evaluate and improve your own creations.
