What is social enterprise?

Collaboration, Society

It’s about playing a smarter game, and changing the rules of existing games so that they’re more fun for more people. How about creating and trying new games?

We could play “Mostly Football” where you’re allowed to use your hands as much as would allow you to do supercool moves and throw the ball at the goal, but mostly it’s still football?

Or “Crapitalism” where the longer it takes you to pass on the parcel the less cake you get?

Or houses you can buy a hotel in Polyopoly for 60% of the price, if you let it accelerate around the board every 3rd person who lands on it?
