Clash of Clans Reminds Me of Business
Oct 28 2014
My 12 year old son made an interesting statement while we were driving to soccer practice today. He said that Clash of Clans, a game he plays often on my iPhone and the mini-iPad that he and his sister share, is like business. He said it out of the blue. He hears me and his dad talk about businesses and companies often.
I asked him why he thought that and he said because you can join clans, you have to find clans, and then sometimes people are nice or not nice in those clans. You can leave clans, some you can just join, some you have to be invited to join, and others you have to ask to join. You can leave a clan if they are not nice or they don’t give you good materials. You can get kicked out of a clan if the clan doesn’t like you.
He asked me if there were wars in business, and I told him that there are competitors that companies “war” against, but they don’t typically try to literally kill each other like they do in the game. 🙂
I was impressed that he came up with the analogy. I guess he’s been paying more attention than I thought to our conversations about our experiences in business.Author: Aruni | Filed under: competition, random stuff | Tags: Clash of Clans | 2 Comments »
