MediaSpark Launches “Unique” Entrepreneur Board Game

Sydney, Nova Scotia, February 3, 2006   — MediaSpark Inc., an educational software development and publishing company, known for its award-winning GoVenture line of educational games and simulations, announced the launch of a one-of-a-kind board game designed specifically for gaining entrepreneurship skills in a fun, educational context.

The GoVenture Entrepreneur Board Game combines the best of your favorite board games into a business context where you run your own business and compete, collaborate, and negotiate with other players.

MediaSpark CEO, Mathew Georghiou, added, “While most people are familiar with the ‘opoly’ style board games designed primarily for kids, we were surprised to discover that a true entrepreneurship board game that is realistic and attractive to both youth and adults did not exist. So, we leveraged the success of our award-winning software simulations to develop an innovative group learning experience in the form of a board game that is fun and educational.”

Designed for ages 12 to adult, activities include:

  • ​Buying, Pricing, and Selling Products (called “Gwidgets”)
  • Employees
  • Paying Expenses
  • Managing Cash Flow
  • Investing in Product Quality and Marketing (Brand)
  • Negotiating with other players
  • Interacting with other players through question and answer, drawing, charades, trivia, word puzzles, and more.
  • ​Balancing work and life
  • Preparation of Balance Sheet,
  • ​Profit and Loss statements, Accounting General Journal and General Ledger (optional)
  • ​and more.

The GoVenture Entrepreneur Board Game sells for $49 for the Home version, $129 for the Educational version, and can be purchased directly from MediaSpark at

The success of GoVenture has positioned MediaSpark as an emerging world leader in the fast-growing educational games and simulation (or “serious games”) industry. MediaSpark has won numerous awards for the company, its products, and newsletter.
