The Thing From The Future is an award-winning imagination game that challenges players to collaboratively and competitively describe objects from a range of alternative futures. The game was designed by the Situation Lab and has been used around the world in different ways.

There is great flexibility in the game’s uses – from group icebreaker to imagination gym, tool for structured exploration of a design space or as engine for tangible outcomes.

The UNESCO Chair on Futures Research has adapted the game in Greek and uses it in participatory workshops.

If you are interested in getting the game or organizing an experiential workshop based on the “Thing from the Future”, contact us.
