About

About

          Inequality-opoly is a custom property trading game that demonstrates how structural racism and sexism in America serve as impediments to accumulating wealth. In this game like in the real world, certain players based on their perceived identity enjoy privileges while others face obstacles to building wealth. 

            I am raising funds to manufacture and distribute as many games as possible throughout the country to spread awareness and advance discourse about the effects of structural racism and sexism in America, specifically how it creates and sustains wealth inequality.

            This project became a passion of mine after I recognized the need to make diversity, equity, and inclusion training more engaging and impactful. I figured it would be engaging and educational to make a property trading game that modeled the real-life effects of Sexism and Racism have on accumulating wealth. 

 This game addresses the following topics and more:

  • Inheritance
  • Race and Gender Pay Gap
  • Prison Industrial Complex
  • Mortgage Approval Rates
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Health Insurance Rates
  • Intimate Partner Violence Rates
  • Natural Disasters
  • Student Loan Debt
  • and more 

            This game does not claim to encompass or simulate the enormous complexity of Racism and Sexism in America. The game aims to focus on how Sexism and Racism effect the accumulation of wealth. The data in the game is based on recent national studies which can be found in the Inequality-opoly Index at www.inequalityopoly.com

Risks and challenges

This is my second time crowdfunding on Kickstarter for this game. My first funding was unsuccessful because I priced the goal too high. I didn't have a thorough understanding of how to source all of the components of the game. After a lot of research, I launched a successful IndieGoGo campaign and sent out about 30 games on schedule in Dec 2018. Now, a year from launching my first crowdfunding campaign, I have a very extensive knowledge of all of the sourcing, shipping, and game creation. The game also has been playtested for hundreds of hours and includes a banker's guide that assists in gameplay.
