Commonspoly has its own special philosophy as a game: nobody wins or loses 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, which is done by picking a player sheet at random. This will determine your gender, social class and citizenship status, all of which can affect you throughout the game. There are 4 types of goods (Urban Goods, Health Goods, Environmental Goods and Intangible Goods), these can be Private, Public or Common (decided by rolling the dice). You have to try and make all of the goods Common, or at least Public. Using the Situation Cards and Special Spaces you have to deal with various challenges 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 that means you can improve and rewrite them as you see fit. Our goal is to have many communities playing the game at the same time, with each giving their own feedback about it and the rules. Hopefully through this the game can be collectively improved!
