We are very encouraged by the feedback we have received from a number of our customers at leading universities across the UK. Here are some of the things they said:

Professor John Sloman, Economics Network

“EconoFun, as its name suggests, is a fun way of revising and learning economic concepts and theories. It is a board game that is suitable for students studying economics at AS, A2 and first-year university levels. Students play the game in small groups and compete to move their pieces round the board to a finishing point by defining terms, describing graphs and explaining concepts. By having more than one board, and hence more than one game being played simultaneously, EconoFun is highly flexible and is equally suitable for small and large groups. It is as much fun as Trivia Pursuit and really effective in engaging students in learning and explaining economics. I was very impressed when I played it with a group of other delegates at the Developments in Economics Education conference at the University of Exeter in September 2013. I believe that teachers and lecturers will be keen to use it with their students once they have seen how it works. It is easy to set up, visually appealing and quick to learn. Each game takes about 15 to 20 minutes and is ideal for use in class.”

 

Jon Andrews, Head of Economics at MillField School

“Here at Millfield, we have been delighted to be involved in the trials for EconoFun. The game provides an excellent classroom-based revision resource that our teaching tutors wholeheartedly recommend. EconoFun promotes a dynamic and interactive approach to revision with a competitive element that really engages the students. EconoFun is flexible enough to be used for specific parts of the AS and A level course and it has been positively received by pupils across the entire ability spectrum – they really love playing it!”
