Downtown member SOKA Studio has been working in collaboration with an NHS doctor based in Liverpool to create a hospital themed board game, called Ward Round!
The game lasts for 90 minutes, and involves 3–6 players competing (or working jointly!) against the clock to admit sick patients who require investigation and treatment, before discharge. Contagious patients, critical patients, and breathless patients all have unique challenges to deal with, and players must make sure that they don’t commit an accidental drug error!
Ward Round! presents common and hilarious problems that you might encounter as a healthcare professional in real life, the game is a realistic simulation of healthcare and can even be used as a training simulation for doctors and nurses.
