Game-based futuring can be a key way to engage stakeholders and research participants in futures research processes. This interactive session will pilot a combination of Question Launch and the Metaphor Molecule Game designed to fit the research needs of the ongoing Bioeconomy and Justice (BioEcoJust) project. BioEcoJust aims to produce new insights regarding the ethical challenges related to growing the Bioeconomy through the year 2125. Question Launch is a structured conversation in which participants add detail to a future fragment by questioning it (see futurespace.co/ql). Metaphor Molecule is a role-based game in which groups invent novel futures by creating future roles and networking them together (Balcom Raleigh & Heinonen 2018). After piloting the game together, participants will try out a context-aware evaluation technique to deepen their experience of playing the game and assess the viability of its design.
