Next to the physical board game, the Scrumban simulation currently also exists as online board game. This makes it possible to use the Scrumban simulations for remote trainings or to use with teams that are geographically spread over different locations. The game is re-created to match the abilities of the Tabletopia platform. The look and feel remains the same, but everything related to writing on the board and cards is replaced by tokens.

Everything you need to get started is available through the Tabletopia web site. Apart from the game itself and information to get started, you will also find an online spreadsheet that will help you with:

  • keeping track of the value creation/value loss

  • calculating cycle time & lead time

  • visualizing the cumulative flow diagram
