One Year Later: What has Cards Against Urbanity Taught Planners?
The game has proven popular enough (indeed, the news post announcing the creation of the game was the sixth most popular news story on Planetizen in 2014), that "the team behind the card game is launching a new, more serious stack of cards. Call it, if you wish, Cards For Urbanity," according to Kaufman.
"Imagine, Do Tank and Greater Places say, a Pinterest board of urban planning — but in real life. Each card will have a single concept or buzzword on it — a woonerf or a protected bike lane or sneckdown — along with an illustration and a definition. The cards are remixable and rearrangable, of course, and the team thinks everyone can use these."
Kaufman provides a lot more about the thinking behind a less snarky version of the game, especially its potential to benefit planning processes around the country. The news about the new card game comes at the one-year anniversary of the Cards Against Urbanity game.
