What do the best ideas have in common? Yes, a meat-stuffed crust pizza with friends (Matt and Alun at The District).
That is where our idea for a marketing-themed board game came from. The aim is to create something that will engage with the marketing community and follows last year’s #anothermarketinginsult campaign, which saw hundreds of people on LinkedIn share the jokes that had been made at their expense. We turned the best five into cartoons, which you can download here: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5.
Between now and mid-May we will be capturing the best suggestions before turning it into a real board game that people can download. Who knows, we might even get some actually made.
So, if you have suggestions then share your ideas on twitter with the hashtag #gameofmarketing and follow @AnotherMktgConf on Twitter to follow developments.
A few of the best ones so far:
- “CEO wants a mobile app. Move back 3 spaces”
- “You learn that the logo you approved appears to resemble an inappropriate male organ. Move back 2 spaces”
- “Twitter hashtag trends unexpectedly. Move forward 5 spaces”
- “Regret setting brand facebook password as ‘password’. Move back 10 spaces”
