The Project Management game that trains Project Managers and Project Teams in the successful application of Project Management skills.
Princeopoly is a board game with products, risks and issues, and success is determined on the roll of a dice.
Under tight deadlines participants are challenged to build the city of Princeopolis, using their Project Management skills as effectively as they can.
There are several roles: the Project Executive, the Mayor of Princeopolis, and Project Managers for industry, infrastructure, environment and security, supplies, and residential areas.

Princeopoly can be played by any current or future Project Management Professional.
Princeopoly is of particular interest to project teams that want to improve their management skills and effectiveness as a team.
A certain degree of knowledge of PRINCE2® is recommended but not required.
The game teaches how to manage the Project in an effective way, in both the planning and implementation phases, by using PRINCE2® Processes, Components and Techniques.
The new city of Princeopolis must be habitable; people live, work and play there. Investments must be recouped according to the business plan, while all kinds of complex issues and concerns, hidden agendas and pitfalls are dealt with. Objectives can only be attained if participants work as a team.
Under the guidance of experienced game leaders, players learn to set up and execute a project. During the game, participants continuously receive feedback on their roles and responsibilities within the Project, and on how decisions are taken. It will become clear that cooperation between Project members is of crucial importance for the progress of the Project.
When to Play the Game
Whenever focus is required on establishing strong Project Governance and assigning roles and responsibilities, for example:
- In preparation or start up of a project.
- After the close of a Project phase or at the end of a Stage Boundary.
- As a practical exercise after completing a PRINCE2® training programme.
- As a tool to establish project-based working within an organisation.
