Unboxing the getKanban game

I will run a workshop at DevSum 11 where we will play this game. If you are interested please sign up here 

I just love the unboxing video’s and blog posts of cameras and mobile phones so I couldn’t resist doing my own unboxing of the getKanban game. So here we go. Winking smile

After some weeks of anticipation the getKanban game finally arrived. But I was not home when Posten tried to drop it off Sad smile

So today when I came home and the pick up notification was in my mail box I dropt everything and drove to Posten and picket up my package.

This is how the box looks like when I picked it up.


After some help from my son we cut the package open and we almost cut off the strap!


I pulled the strap and out came this great looking bag!


I carefully opened the bags zipper and out came this content:

  • A Facilitator’s Guide
  • One Game Instruction
  • Two transparent bags of markers, playing cards, dices and some post-it notes
  • Two green Game board bags
  • One white mystery bag(don’t know what it is for yet)
    I opened one of the transparent bags.


I then opened one of the Game board bags. This is the content:

  • More Game instructions
  • One Cumulative Flow Diagram card
  • One Control Chart card
  • One Financial Summary card
  • One Daily Steps card
  • And the Kanban board



I really looking forward to trying this game out with the family this coming weekend!

On a final serious note.

Do you want to really understand Kanban for software development? The getKanban Board Game is the quickest, most effective way to teach the principles and mechanics of Kanban. Leave a comment or contact me on twitter for some Kanban training, consulting or just to play the game.
