The Fair Play game provides players with the opportunity to take the perspective of Jamal Davis, a Black graduate student on his way to becoming a renowned professor. In this game, players experience racial bias during interactions with other characters, as well as in the virtual environment. As Jamal, the road to success involves navigating the academic world; as a Black student, bias can steer you off of a successful path. Winning in Fair Play involves learning when and how to name biases. While many will succeed in Fair Play, the true winners are those that learn the reality of bias. The game involves taking on the challenges of graduate student while also learning when, how or if to name biases. Typically played as a part of a workshop, players learn about and identify biases through the game and gain strategies for addressing and counteracting biases in academic settings.
