A Pinball Game and Teamwork

What can a multiplayer pinball game teach about teamwork?

A lot.

Over the weekend I was at The Tech with Sumukh and saw this multiplayer pinball game. The objective of the game is to get their ball to the final destination.It was a game to watch as the kids were battling to win.


While every kid is working hard to get guide his or her own ball, he or she is indifferent to the efforts of other kids who have their own individual agenda. Every effort to win by a kid thwarts the efforts of other kids to win.

It’s just a game but that’s exactly what happens when the individual and team agendas are not aligned.

Something to think about…
