The PlayDecide game enables players to get familiar with a question, see it from different perspectives and form or clarify their own opinion. PlayDecide also invites players to look at issues as a group: can you reach a positive consensus?

350+ games in almost 30 languages are available. The game has a new online platform, courtesy of Ecsite: check it out

Game topics range from vaccination to football refereeing. You can also translate an existing game or create you own. 


We need help with translation 

We have updated the English template for the game just before relaunch - we're looking for translators to give all other existing languages a much-needed makeover. Get in touch at info@ecsite.eu.

The following languages are needed: Basque, Bulgarian, Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Hebrew, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Serbian, Slovak, Swedish.
