In our modern remote (but sadly socially distanced or isolated) environment, ongoing collaboration is vital to ensure information & knowledge is exchanged and regularly refreshed. Cards can be used digitally in a variety of different platforms to engage stakeholders and gather feedback on their understanding and experience:
Whichever platform is deployed, using the same familiar card images digitally & physically provides a common visual language to aid communication between the ‘Board Room’ and the ‘Control Room’.
Cards can be produced with individual QR Codes on the front and/or a common code on the back of the cards and/or the front & back of the boxes to direct the player to information, guidance or media related to the event or topic on the card:
A online/desktop multi-player version is now available where Players dial into a shared online room to play cards which are dealt as normal.
Players only see their own cards and use this common ‘table’ to play games & discuss topics. There is no limit on the number of concurrent players but 8 is typically the maximum practical group size.
For example, online interactive discussions on Monitoring & Managing key Process Safety principles or indicators:
Or validating (via a simple review) of HAZOP or PHA studies by placing cards onto the ‘table’ when the LoC event has been discussed:
At the end of the review, whichever cards are left are either:
- To be discussed
- Not applicable
- Discussed but participant wasn’t paying attention
This is a public platform (customised to suit) which is accessed via a unique URL and managed by the Client.

Note – the above platform is unlocked, please do not delete cards !
