Play Urbanizer, a multiplayer city building game! By playing this game, you contribute to our understanding of how people make decisions in groups. Your participation is extremely important because, previously, researchers have been unable to study how people behave in groups, and they had to rely on studying how people act independently and then make assumptions about how this would translate to groups and teams.
Through your game playing, we can study individual behavior and group dynamics, as well as gamification for social science research and you’re helping pave the way for a radical new way of conducting social science!
The game will take about half an hour to play. Please have a look at the tutorial before joining the game. There may be a short wait at the beginning as enough players join the game - please be patient. You can only play the game this one time, so please enjoy it!
We will update the link on this page just before the Challenge begins.
If you can't make it today, we also host two other Urbanizer Challenges this CitSciMonth! Please check them out:
Saturday, April 25th: https://scistarter.org/urbanizer-challenge-2
