What the heck is ScrumTale?
What is ScrumTale?ScrumTale is designed to teach the Scrum framework. It improves learning experience by simulating Agile product delivery while experiencing all Agile principles. This game is a perfect aid to practice all the elements of the Scrum framework: roles, events and artifacts.
The players simulate Scrum teams writing a crime story simultaneously using Google Docs. Collaborative story writing is very similar to software production: you need to be creative and act as a team to deliver a product. You will also experience challenges with integration, quality and tools that are present during software development without the need of having a technical background. You can observe the mechanics of the Scrum during the stormy process of story writing.
The GameplayThe workshop participants will be split into two teams and each person will be assigned with a Scrum role: Developer, Scrum Master, Product Owner or Chief Product Owner. The goal for each team will be to write the greatest crime tale ever using the Scrum framework. The product delivery will be split into three sprints. Within each sprint, the players will practice Scrum events: sprint planning, sprint review and retrospective.
The product of the game is a Book. The Book consists of two Tales that are written by the Development Teams. Each Tale describes a different murder but all of them are linked together, both by the Detective’s character and by the common style.

ScrumTale is an awsome game to realy quickly start to understand how Scrum works and its benefits.
Best Scrum game that I have an ability to play: Fun, Real, Engageing. Highly Recomended.
A brilliant way to bring Scrum concepts and values to life.
Great workshops! I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to work at Scrum and share knowledge!!
Most of the Scrum workshops focuses on showing Scrum events – we build Lego city, we have 3 minutes for planning, 7 minutes for sprint, 3 minutes for review and so on. ScrumTale is different. ScrumTale is focused on showing Scrum as the framework for creating innovative products by whole team. The team has the unique opportunity to improve cooperation skills, communication mechanism and integration. Learning and final product of the workshop are amazing!
Of the games that simulate SCRUM, this one is unique. Writing a book together is almost like writing code. We can get to know and practice multiple aspects of team work organized by SCRUM. The game is a perfect complement to a training for those who start their adventure with Agile and SCRUM as well as for those who are already experienced and wanting to reach a higher level, practice scalability challenges, difficult customer relation or teach a new team how to work more efficiently.
