The Governance Game: a tool for scenario modelling opensource collaborations

None
Governance is important for open source projects, but unless you start with a clear vision, it can be hard to get everyone on the same page. Governance often only becomes a priority when a project is already popular. So how do you build agreement and a common understanding of the governance of your codebase? The Foundation for Public Code created the [Governance Game](https://github.com/publiccodenet/governance-game) to solve this problem for public sector open source codebases - but it can be used for any open content that’s built collaboratively, including yours! The Governance Game is a fun way to help you and your community start talking about various aspects of governance, and highlight potential pitfalls. Of course, we have both physical and fully remote versions. In this film we'll explain why using this game will strengthen your project and build deeper connections within your community.
