The History

The Contract Game is nearly 20 years old, created by ASSA as a learning tool:

  • It helps build understanding of how to deal with challenging situations

  • Probably influenced by the Honeywood File

  • Originally in a paper format (with carbon paper)

  • JCT 98 version was converted to an internet platform

  • It helps clarify relationships

The JCT/SBCC 05 Game

The new Game has now been played, vetted and argued over :

  • It is a total rewrite of the previous game

  • Probably influenced by knowledge of litigation

  • Back in its original paper format (with carbon paper)

  • It will be converted to an internet platform by the end of this year

  • All parties are unpleasant

  • ”Trust no-one”

  • It is now full of dirty tricks

The Process

Each team of three or four players follows a route created by a series of scenarios:

  • Each question must be answered fully

  • Answers are in the form of contract correspondence or the use of forms

  • There should be no dubiety about the answer - it’s all very black and white

The Scenarios

All of the scenarios appear as letters, faxes, memos, emails, texts:

  • In some cases there are multiple documents to be cross-referenced

  • It is based on an apparently live project

  • It runs from tender acceptance to post final certificate

  • There is never any break from the “game reality”
