Driver's Roll: A Board Game for New Drivers

The simulation-board game Driver’s Roll--a board game for young drivers-- has completed the new product development cycle and is ready for commercial production. The idea for Driver's Roll came from work in C&I 400 (Simulation and Gaming) and was further developed in C&I 585N (New Product Development). The idea is based on the fact that young drivers have limited experience with a variety of complex driving situations that can lead to crashes. Playing the game is one way to learn more about the judgment issues that complicate driving. This game has had its information/judgments informed by expert driving researchers and has been usability tested with college and high school students.
