The Watchers

An Augmented Board Game About Online Privacy
The Watchers isn't like other edugames out there. It was designed with a team of 7 kids, who injected it with imagination and humour, while pushing for creative approaches to the presentation of educational content. The game doesn't attempt to teach dry skills; rather, its goal is to stimulate discussion and raise awareness about tough questions.

Rather than teaching children to memorize ways they can avoid "stranger danger," the game facilitates the development of autonomous privacy decision making skills. In so doing, children can use the game to practice making assessments about which individuals or companies they should share their information with, as well as critically thinking about what the consequences of those choices may be.

The Watchers is appropriate for kids 8+, but guidance from an older child or adult is recommended.

THE GAME MUST BE PLAYED WITH THE COMPANION APP ON A COMPUTER (or iPad, coming soon!) AT WATCHERSGAME.COM
