Commonspoly has its own special philosophy: nobody can win or lose individually. The main goal of the game is to “communalise” as many as goods as you can, and you can only do this by collaborating with other players.
One of the first tasks is to choose your character profile, done by picking a player sheet at random. This will determine your gender, social class and citizenship status, all of which will affect you throughout the game. There are 4 types of goods: Urban, Health, Environmental and Intangible. These can be Private, Public or Common, decided by rolling the dice. You have to try and ensure that all of the goods are Common, or at least Public. You’ll come across special spaces and situation cards whilst playing which may cause challenges for you along the way. And beware… the Speculators can create further problems for you!
As with the rest of the game, the Peer Production Licence used for the Rules and Regulations means you can improve and rewrite them as you see fit. Our goal is to have many communities playing Commonspoly at the same time, with each one giving feedback on the game and the rules. Hopefully through this the game can be collectively improved!
