The Designercise Design Thinking kit breaks down commonly held biases around products to help players unleash their innovative thinking skills. It includes games like “Functional Fixations” (which challenges players to come up with new ways of using everyday things), "Back to the Future” (in which players unpack the history of an innovation and then design a future version), “Change it” (in which players have one object card and one problem card, and have to solve the problem through an innovation in the object-- like the problem of "caffeine addiction" with the innovation of "boiling water") and “Improbable Things” (an empathy game that encourages players to design a new version of an object for a defined character). Since this pack involves decks of the object, innovation, messy problem and role cards, this kit is perfect for designing games around empathy, design research, innovative thinking and the role of design in everyday life.
