As a collaboration game, participants break into four teams. The NHG is both traditional (board game) and non-traditional (customizable with an app). In the figure below, two players are designated per team.
The Nerd Herd Game consists of a playing card deck, game pieces, and two game boards (a simple board game for fast, under one hour play and the other that offers a little more challenging).
The design of the game is based on grouping into teams to encourage collaboration and spirited competition. The physical game board, cards, and game pieces heighten game play instead of just a computerized game experience.
The Nerd Herd Game app gives you the ability to create your own game topics. When a playing card is selected from the deck, the app brings up the next question to ask (or task the team has to perform) from a game set database.
If the team responds with the correct outcome, they move their game piece forward. The first team to reach D-U-N-N in the center of the game board wins! Because the game set is a database, you can create your own questions and tasks.
The NHG desktop app runs on all three of the major platforms:
The Nerd Herd Game doesn’t have to be “all business” either. If you are hosting an extended family birthday bash or planning a high school reunion, turn embarrassing situations and memories into a unique game experience.
The Nerd Herd Game app is a single program executable that is configured to a set of features unlocked with an edition code. The game stuff that you touch are available in two different forms. Ken struggled with identifying each edition using boring corporate sounding names. Since most everyone on planet Earth loves coffee*, each edition is given a name associated with coffee.
*That’s a fact, Jack!
The most popular and cost-effective personal edition is called Americano:

The Nerd Herd Game is affordably priced, and doesn’t require a subscription. App (and game set) updates are always free. And if you use more than one computer, you can install The NHG app on all of ’em! The game is available in four editions, each with a unique set of features and packaging. (The simplest edition is free forever.)
The NHG is the only D-I-Y gamification product on the market, all editions are easy to customize.
