Supported by the SG50 Celebration Fund, “SingaPlorers” is a unique cooperative game that allows players to experience actual challenges that Singapore faced and allows players to strategise on how to ensure our nation's peace and progress.

Jul - Dec 2015

SingaPlorers as a game is first of its kind as its main objective is to model Singapore’s nation building story from 1965 to 2015 where Singaporeans united together as one, overcome the challenges over time and in the process learn about the roots of historical places and national icons and also key events that demonstrated how Singaporeans have rallied together to harness opportunities and overcome challenges.


It is a cooperative game where the players have to play cards to support each other in overcoming the challenges that Singapore faces. In playing the game, the players will experience working cooperatively, negotiating or even sometimes have to make small sacrifices to overcome the constant challenges and work together towards achieving peace and progress in Singapore.


The game will focus on these 4 main challenges:


1) Building a national identity and fostering social cohesion
2) Safeguarding our homeland through defence and security
3) Declining and ageing population
4) Limited resources


SingaPlorers aims to help players understand that the success behind Singapore is a result of the constant work and cooperation of all Singaporeans. Also, in playing SingaPlorers, players will see the cause and effects of events or policies Singapore have adopted. Players will learn about Singapore’s past, present and challenges we face in a fun and engaging way. Players might also experience the effects of uncooperative play and find out for themselves what would happen to Singapore as a result.
