The Motor City board game was designed by John Yorke and was inspired by ‘Herbie’ a character in the book “The Goal” by Eli Goldratt.
The book explored the how KanBan and the theory of constraints were used to make a manufacturing plant profitable. In the book the characters play a simple game to show flow and how variability and dependencies impact production. I have taken this idea and turned it in to a fun game playable on multiple levels.
