The USP of these games is the fact that there are very few products like these in the market that promotes edutainment in a non-digital setting.
At a time when start-up culture and entrepreneurship have become buzzwords in the country, these board games will help in introducing vital concepts and principles to both the uninitiated as well as a seasoned entrepreneurs. They also have the potential to be included in the curriculum of schools and colleges in order to upskill millennials and sharpen their minds. As these two board games are played in groups, they also promote team-building skills and help build confidence in the players.
Gaurav Bhagat, who is also the founder of Consortium Gifts and Gaurav Bhagat Academy, announced the launch through a statement. The ABCs of stock market trading- which is a niche and feared area in general, and focused goal-setting – which is generally ignored by individuals and their mentors, can be learned easily via playing these games.
“In India, people have serious apprehensions about investing in the stock market. As a business coach, I come across youngsters who have entrepreneurial mindsets but do not want to take risks. With this new game, they can work on their stock market knowledge and understand the complexities that drive the market. Influenced by the concept of ‘Money Circle’, The Stock Market Game is intended to be simple, engaging, and informative at the same, and with a simplified format, I hope it encourages more adults to learn more about equities, stocks, futures, and markets. Now that these games are available on leading e-retailers like Meesho, Amazon & Flipkart, more people can buy our products, learn, and have fun,” Mr. Bhagat said in a statement.
Mr. Bhagat’s other pioneering idea, Lakshya: The Goal-Setting game focuses on setting attainable and practical goals and helps players find ways to achieve these goals. Gaurav Bhagat Academy also offers a goal-setting course on its website, which can be an interesting idea to pair with the game, especially for professionals, entrepreneurs & students.
“Lakshya: The goal-setting game is not merely engaging and fun but is based on science and our ability to learn and outgrow challenges. I have been mentoring students and professionals across corporations and educational institutions, and in my journey, I have found that people often have the hardest time setting goals. This derails their work, productivity, and ability to grow. Lakshya is also intended for kids who can learn more about goal-setting and managing their tasks. This is truly an entertaining game for anyone between the age of six and eighty,” – Mr. Bhagat further added.
The games would be further used to promote entertainment-based learning among adolescents, fresh graduates, and new entrepreneurs. Mr. Gaurav Bhagat also hopes to use these ideas to nurture more young minds in India and around the world.
