DemoDice – App for Dice-based Storytelling

Storytelling and Democracy learning combined in a dice game – how does that work? After 2 years of intense brainwork testing we can assure: storytelling and dice games work pretty well for learning Democracy. Together with Amanda Warner and the game developers team from our Erasmus + project DemoGames – the Democracy Learning Box we are proud to present DemoDice.

Dice-based storytelling

From 1 to 10 players reflect and exchange their experience with democracy, as well as their desires and ideas for a more democratic future. The standard set includes 9 dice with six symbols each.

  • Three dices on democracy as a political system (participation, rule of law, basic/human rights),
  • Three dices on individuals and interactions (actors, emotions, power relations),
  • Three dice on contextual factors (social policy areas, places, challenges and threats to democracy).
  • Special dice are available on sustainability and the pandemic.

The game can be played with or without more detailed information about the symbols and its various meanings.

Test it:

Install Apple Store | Google Play Store

The free and non-commercial app DemoDice is based on the analogue DemoDice game, which has been developed by DARE member demokrative.
