Potato Pirates 2: Enter the Spudnet. It's a game that uses potatos (that are pirates) in order to help teach cybersecurity and computer networking.
Because that's the world we live in these days.
By the way, I'm not saying that there's a thing wrong with that. I find it absolutely amazing. Some people don't get concepts right away. If you can find a good metaphor that gives you the information in a new and creative way that does jive with your learning style, bring it on. This new standalone game does just that and it's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
After 2 years, 3 Design Awards, over 25,000 decks and one too many potato puns, we're back. Potato Pirates: Enter the Spudnet is inspired by how the Internet works, the possible dangers online and how one can stay safe in the cyber space.
We mashed potatoes (pun intended) and networking concepts into this cyber-fueled board game for ages 10 and up to learn about networking and cybersecurity concepts - all without computers! This board game is designed for 3-6 players and is perfect for gamers, parents and educators alike.
In the game, the spudnet is a web which connects shipping routes throughout the Carbobbean Seas, much like the world wide web which connects our world. You play as a Potato Pirate, competing with other factions to be the most reliable delivery service over on the spudnet.
Dispatch ships from your warehouses and use your power-ups to either get ahead of your competition or launch cyberattacks to gain the upper hand. Be warned, what goes around comes around. For a Potato Pirate, cybercrime always pays! Be the first to fulfill all your orders to gain the trust of the potato folks in your spud-tastic service and win the game.
