In this game, we re-purpose the classic game of Battleships to teach Porter's Generic Strategies.
With a battlefield determined by market scope and level of uniqueness, students apply their understanding of these concepts as they attempt to find where real companies are lurking. They earn points for each direct hit. The fewer the shots taken, the higher the score!
In live mode, students are shown a heat map of shots taken after each turn, presenting a brilliant opportunity to pause and discuss as a class. This game is known to elicit plenty of discussion from students, particularly when there is a significant amount of disagreement!
