Talent, Event & Project Cards
"Open StarTer Village" leverages a recruiting system by using Talent cards so players can collectively tackle natural disasters and human-made crises (Event cards) and subsequently complete projects (Project cards) to earn victory points! Will you go at it alone or work with collaborators to solve these societal issues and promote civic engagement? The choice is yours, players decide!
Project Card | Never-ending Cases
A total of 39 project cards are available throughout the game, including open government, data, and source code projects. Players can choose projects based on their interests and abilities and then complete them through strategic resource allocation. From daily personal life challenges to significant environmental policy formulation, solutions lie within the collective and collaborative spirit. Through the design of open-source Project Cards, you can experience the diversity of tech tools used in these real-world projects and how solutions were achieved collaboratively. Each Project Card has different levels of difficulty depending on the project scope, which will earn you varying victory points once completed.

Talent Cards| Diverse Skills
To excel in any task, you need the right people with diverse skill sets! Just like any tech tools, software, or websites, they weren't made based on only codes. Open StarTer features 7 different talent cards, each contributing their unique expertise, perfectly addressing the diverse requirements of developing tech tools! Skills like content creation, graphic design, legal analysis, and programming are recruited based on player project needs! Recruit and gather your forces, all for the common good.

Event Cards| Disasters
A project isn't complete without a splash of frustration and some challenges. Draw an Event Card each round to add spice to your project progression, whether it's a shark biting through an undersea cable causing an internet blackout, a mysterious flu outbreak turning people into Otakus, or even a sudden show of support from officials for tech openness. Various obstacles and resources directly impact your planning and strategy. With 15 simulated event cards, players can expect different surprises (and disasters) on their path to project execution.
