AGILE GAMES INDY
November 2019 Meetup

@ Launch Indy
WHAT THE HECK IS AGILE GAMES INDY?
Agile Games Indy is a brand-new monthly meetup, featuring a particular game that covers a concept that Agilists can learn and benefit from. We've designed these meetups to be informal, informative, and full of organic opportunities to gain insights from others in the Agile community.
Agile Games Indy is NOT a lecture series. Hands-on learning is not only suggested, it’s REQUIRED. There will be a slew of opportunities to meet other guests, and we promise you'll get to know more about each than just names and titles. We'll kick off with structured networking to get your brain flowing as to how we can together empower our efforts with Agile. We'll then play the game, and lastly, talk about how you can apply what we've learned from the activity directly to your Agile teams and organizations.
5:30pm - 6:00pm | Focused Networking / Enjoy Resfreshments
6:00pm - 7:00pm | Game Time
7:00pm - 7:30pm | Decompress / Activity Follow-Up
Your ticket includes a beverage and food to chow upon to fuel your efforts.
This month's activity: The "getKanban" Game.
The getKanban Board Game is a physical game designed to teach the concepts and mechanics of Kanban for software development in a class or workshop setting. It's hands-on, engaging, and fun!
The game is played in teams of four to six people, one game per team. Each team has a playing board representing a Kanban task board, and a collection of story cards representing work to be done. Teams compete to maximize profit by optimizing the flow of work.

ANOTHER MONTHLY MEETUP? WHY?
Agile Games Indy loves Agile, and we want to give you the opportunity to practice what you preach.
We also know that it’s hard to have genuine conversations with your peers within Agile. We tend to talk about WHAT we’re working on, but when do we have time to really dive in and truly get to know each other and our ambitions.
This is a meetup to get Agilists together to do what they do best - be Agile! Not network and schmooze just because.
WE want this to be more than just a monthly meetup about learning a particular exercise - we want you to benefit from Indy’s best and most dynamic resource for your growth: the Agile community.
If you’re new to Agile, you’ll learn a lot. If you are currently in an Agile team, use this activity to bring your group together and increase comraderie. If you’re an Agile leader, you'll feel more empowered to foster an environment of continuous improvement.
