Abstract [en]

The mango chain game is a simulation game used for research purposes. It facilitated studying the bargaining power of Costa Rican mango producers in international supply chains of mango. The game simulates a simplified mango export chain in which real world local producers can play the role of producer association, multinational, independent exporter or retailer. The game is an operationalisation of a conceptual model of a netchain build upon theories from multiple disciplines, including transaction cost economics, bargaining theory and cultural dimensions. The design is a board game, using simple forms, coins and pieces as game material. After series of test sessions in a university environment, five sessions have been played in the field. This paper presents results fro experiences porting a game from a university environment to the field, learning experiences in a research game and existing relationships versus bargaining
