Terms of Service running man game

Another fun little lightweight law game — this time from Koding Global Virtual Hackathon in December 2014. It’s called the TOS Game — it’s more of a live prototype now, hopefully built out into something proper soon!.

It’s a very simple game: you the user must type contract provisions out correctly, to match the Terms of Service you are presented with.  You must type fast enough and correctly enough that this little running man doesn’t fall of you wall of text.

The function seems to be that if you have to type out the terms of a contract, you’re more likely to pay attention to it & understand what you’re agreeing to.

It probably wouldn’t work with behemoth TOS agreements like we see often online.  But probably it would for plain language shorter ones.Law Game - TOS Game - Open Law Lab - Screen Shot 2014-12-21 at 10.27.23 AM
