-- While Corporate America and President Obama demands innovation They really want inventions. Innovation is defined as profitable inventions, mathematically represented as INNOVATION = INVENTIONS + PROFITS TM. Inventions are defined as an act or instance of creating or producing by exercise of the imagination. No one exactly knows which invention will be profitable. It is a gamble at best. The only way to win is to invent. Everyone has the potential to invent. All it takes is getting into the invention groove.
Getting into the invention groove is easier than one would think. The foundation of inventing is a combination of play and the scientific method. Dr. Stuart Brown in his book, Play states, “ The ability to invent (is) to dream up solutions to problems that people may not yet even know they have. The ability to innovate comes out of an ability to play.” Play leads to imagination and hence invention. Want children and adults to invent all day every day? Give them an option to play infused with the scientific method. Fluke – the wealth building game of accidental inventions to encourage students and their families to play, dream and invent. Players experience thrilling scientific research, wacky inventions, stock explosions, gigantic wealth and legal duels while building a portfolio of cash, patents and research corporations as they maneuver through the Risk and Rewards in the wild, wild world of intellectual property. Players with the largest portfolio wins!
In conjunction with Fluke – the wealth building game of accidental inventions, we launched the book series, Chronicles of a Young Inventor as the backstory to our board game.
