Disruptus asks players to look at objects and ideas and use different approaches — as determined by the roll of a die — to innovate. Disruptus™ draws inspiration from the very important practice of ‘disruptive thinking’. Disruptive thinking is one of the most powerful ways to innovate. It has been used to create ideas and objects like digital music, camera phones, and car sharing programs. Disruptive thinking is looking at an object or idea and coming up with an entirely different way to achieve the same end.
So, in the case of car sharing, the innovators looked at the car rental industry and came up with a new approach that ‘disrupted’ the old conventional method.
Arrazzles lets you explore abstract geometrical configurations. Each card has one of five different patterns of slots allowing for countless abstract building and design opportunities. Arrazzles cards are covered in five beautiful, reflective metallic colors, with a different color on each side of the card. As you build and connect the cards, the metallic colors reflect off each other. The hole in the middle of each card allows for further form exploration – it’s sized to perfectly hold a standard plastic straw, so you can connect the cards that way, or string them together with yarn or pipe cleaner, allowing you to build a completely unique abstraction every time you play!
IMAGINE Peek at the sky at night and see the different arrays of stars. Can you recreate one of them?
Look at the patterns of leaves on trees. Can you build the same?
Appreciate the flower arrangements in your garden and how the colors play off of each other. Try that with the Arrazzles cards!
Start with just one card and attach more cards without a plan in mind!
CONNECT Make interesting arrangements where colors branch off from one another by placing cards side by side on a flat surface.
Connect all of the cards with 4 slots and then do the same for 6 and 8 slotted cards and see how the position of the slots changes the three-dimensional geometry.
Connect the cards in specific color sequences.
BUILD Variations in slot position allow you multiple ways to shape your creation.
Flip a card from one side to another for a completely different color perspective and overall look.
Thread colorful objects through the holes like straws, strings, yarn or pipe cleaners.Use all of the cards or a select few – it’s up to you!
