Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo

833 views

Published on

Welcome to the game Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo, created by Maria Matarelli. This game is an engaging, interactive approach for learning the responsibilities of each role in Scrum and has been used in Scrum training classes and CSM classes with great results!

I created this game so that while in a training class or trying to explain the importance of what each role does while using Scrum, rather than tell people what each role does, invite them to participate in discussing which role performs which responsibilities.

Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo
- Engages people in talking about what each role does
- Creates an opportunity for valuable dialogue
- A great teaching from the back of the room approach

Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo incorporates knowledge of Scrum and board game strategy for an engaging game that will be accompanied by valuable dialogue about each role.

  1. 1. Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo Created by Maria Matarelli Used by Bevill Edge and Scrum Trainers throughout the world Scrum is an empirical approach ideal for solving complex problems http://www.scrumalliance.org/why-scrum
  2. 2. Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo An engaging, interactive approach for learning the responsibilities of each Role in Scrum If you like incorporating interactive approaches in your training classes or want to help students or Scrum teams better understand the responsibilities of each Scrum Role, play Scrum Roles Tic- Tac-Bingo. I created this game so that while in a training class or trying to explain the importance of what each role does while using Scrum, rather than tell people what each role does, invite them to participate in discussing which role performs which responsibilities. Scrum Roles Tic-Tac-Bingo – Engages people in talking about what each role does – Creates an opportunity for valuable dialogue – A great teaching from the back of the room technique
  3. 3. How to Play • Identify one Master of Ceremonies per table • Everyone else pairs up in groups of two people • Each person in a group selects a different colored marker • Participants play rock, paper, scissors to determine who goes first • Master of Ceremonies reads a question • Participant A selects a card and shows on the count of 3 – If the card is correct, then the player puts an “X” on the appropriate space (they can select any space with that role) – If the card is not correct, the player does not place an “X” on the board • Master of Ceremonies reads another question • Participant B selects a card (same rules apply as above) • Rinse and repeat
  4. 4. To Win • Whichever player gets five “X’s” in a row first is the winner – Five “X’s” can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal (must be a straight line, cannot bend) • Winner advances to the next bracket • If no one gets five “X’s” in a row, the winner is the person who has the most “X’s” on the board It is recommended to have some form of prize for the final winner. This could as simple as a certificate of achievement and mad bragging rights or a gift card or whatever you think would be appropriate (after playing they want to know what the winner gets, so establish that up front or let them know if there is a prize)
  5. 5. Tips for Facilitating • Recommended having 5 people at a table - one Master of Ceremonies per table and two sets of two people playing. The first person to win at the table will advance to the final round where each winner from each table will play in a final game while the other people at their table now become their biggest fans and root them on toward victory. • Variations may be used when playing this game – You could have each player alternate who takes a turn to guess the role in a civilized manner – You could live more dangerously and have whoever holds up the card first be allowed to guess the role – You could have one Master of Ceremonies for the whole room and everyone else pairs up at a game board (two people per board) – Other variations may also be used
