Market Share game ASHS

Nick Hindson 2
Welcome to Market Share...

I originally designed the Market Share game to help entrepreneurs learn more about business. Particularly those who haven't had much in the way of business training. As the game developed we realised that it offered other benefits and provided learning outcomes for students of colleges and universities. Businesses wanted to start using it to help with team building and to provide engagement at social events for their staff.

From very early on in the development of Market Share we realised that our purpose was to grow our economy through business education, help entrepreneurs build better businesses and increase the financial literacy of our next generation. These 3 motives underpin everything we do.

We hope that you enjoy the Market Share business board games and welcome any feedback you may have.

Thank you

Warm Regards

“We were delighted to host Mary and her Business Studies students. Here at the Telecom Foundation, we’re about building a better future for our Kiwi kids and what better way to see that in action than with a group of students fully engaged for a day playing the Market Share game. They were learning valuable business skills and obviously enjoying themselves at the same time! It was even more special to host them at Telecom Place so that they got a fuller experience by being in our work environment and interacting with Telecom people.”

Market Share is a game that teachers can use not just on a Friday afternoon, but as an essential part of the learning process. You really are getting a game that satisfies a number of key areas.

"We have five Market Share board games in the Business Department and have been very impressed with the engagement that students have with the game. We have successfully used the game with students from Years 10 to 13. In addition to playing the game there are ample opportunities to write lessons based around the businesses on the board."

I had no idea what to expect when I sat down to play Market Share and I couldn't have been more impressed! The game had my brain working overtime from start to finish and struck a perfect balance between a fun competitive board game and a really valuable learning and development tool.
It is not everyday that children and adults alike engage in a fun and educational activity that results in a snowball of enthusiasm to grow their responsibility and productivity to new levels. Market Share - The Game, positively rewards participants in the kind of strategic thinking that is cornerstone to develop success, leadership and mastery in the world of business and life.
Market Share is an extremely fun and competitive game that will get the room off their seats with emotions, but at the same time provoke the passion and education required to excel as an entrepreneur in everyday real business. I love it!

It brings out all the competitive nature in you, you’ve got so much to learn from it, it’s a no brainer, you’d definitely play the game again.

I found the game extremely fun, trying to out wit your opponent and get a head in the game or 'out of the rat race'. The game is a great representation to real life and can be used to benefit many students/young adults as they go out into the real world. The game gives people the opportunity to be financially educated.
Nick Hindson played Market Share with around 50 students from MIOMO. Even though these 17-24 year olds came from very diverse backgrounds, they all shared a positive report. It was encouraging to see the game stimulate their desire to become fiscally savvy and interested in business.

Market Share is a game of strategy and chance based around the development of a business operating in the New Zealand market place. It places the player in the hot seat. The player is faced with managing risk, developing strategy, managing cash flow and their resources with a little negotiation thrown in to keep them on their toes. This truly is a great way to learn business skills while having fun.
