CURATE: The Game of the Digital Curation Lifecycle

What better way to make digital curation less intimidating than teaching us something about it in a board game! "The Game of the Digital Curation Lifecycle", as presented at the Digital Strategies for Heritage Conference 2011, is supposed to allow participants to distance themselves from their everyday issues by "providing hypothetical digital project scenarios." This encouraged the participants to share without feeling as though they've done something wrong.
You win the game when you advance to the 'Manage' phase (not when you purchase both Boardwalk and Park Place). How cool!
