A multiplayer game that has been launched to help students navigate the business world is being supported by Powys County Council. 

Business Battle has been made specifically for the classroom and launched by Aardman and the Intellectual Property Office (IPO). 

Now the council’s Trading Standards Service is encouraging all secondary schools in the county to use Business Battle as a tool to help students navigate the business world.

It teaches the core principles of manufacturing a product, releasing it into a potentially crowded market and maintaining interest and profitability of the product with savvy marketing and strategic plays. 

Inspired by classic board games such as Monopoly™, Risk™ and Battleships™, groups battle to achieve the highest market share, a strong portfolio of intellectual property and make the most profit!

It is specifically aimed around the curriculum that delivers interesting facts, relevant case studies, discussion points along with classroom and homework activities. The user interface has a cool graphic style, designed to appeal to the core audience of key stage four pupils.

Clive Jones, the council’s Professional Lead for Trading Standards, said: “A basic understanding of intellectual property is a key life skill for those leaving school or university to take up careers or start businesses that depend upon inventiveness and creativity.

“This ensures that the next generation is equipped with the knowledge it needs to succeed in a competitive world.”
