Designed by two Residence Life professionals, BCD is the low pressure discussion companion to your live-action scenarios. Use it before your live-action for a low-pressure primer, afterwards for further processing, or periodically during the year as a pick-up-and-go refresher.

Kristi Hipp "Our staff loves this game; it got rave reviews from our team!" Medium Private Midwestern University

Jacquelyn Deneau "We received the product and are very happy with it. This product is so unique and it is designed perfectly for our training purposes. We are so glad you thought of this." Medium Public Northwest University

Kathryn Van Ness "My staff initially didn't want to play BCD during a staff meeting; they'd already gone through staff training and had at least 4 months on the job, after all. But after the first few scenarios, they really enjoyed themselves. The unexpected scenarios really made my staff think about what could happen in the hall and helped them flex their critical and creative thinking skills. Best of all, they were playing the game as a team and relied on each other! This is a great supplement to staff training!" Medium Public Midwestern University
