|Resume / Brief description
This is a fast and funny game that brings lots of creative ideas to solve a problem. Designed for two players, each one has 5 "creative cards" in her hands. In its turn she picks a card and puts it into the other player space to challenge her to ideate one more solution to the problem using the element on the card as inspiration. The limited time adds emotion and wakes even more the brains. At the end, a good deal of new and original ideas has been generated.
Generate new ideas to solve a problem or improve a situation while having a good time.
|Implementation - Overview||It's a simple game that only has the following stages:
- Problem definition
- Ideas collection
|Implementation - Guidelines||
1. The first phase is to clarify the objective of the ideation. It can be a specific problem to solve or just an exploration of new ideas around a topic. It also could be a "serious" problem (For example: How to avoid old people to forget their medication) or a more informal challenge (For example: Ideas to have a creative birthday party).

In a marketing agency, the Ideas Duel is a game used frequently. In fact, the Ideas Duel format has been replaced by a more elaborated version printed on strong cardboard. Often, when a creative team is "blocked" they run to the table and play a couple of duels. Some variations to the game had been introduced by the creative people of this agency. For example, the play Team Duels, where two teams of 2 or 3 ideators face each other, or the Chess timer version, where each player has not 1 minute to solve each card but 15 minutes in total to get as many ideas as she can.
