Meet our very first in-house card game, AtaMatch! If you’ve been around kids lately, it might look familiar - especially the conspicuous round cards.
AtaMatch is lightning-fast fun, based on the existing hit card game that’s skyrocketed in popularity worldwide since its introduction in 2009. It’s an easy, simple game, suitable for ages six and up, and the goal is to be the first to identify a matching symbol between two cards.
So how did we end up doing it? We wanted to make something fun (but still challenging!) for our Ataccamers, something that they could play during breaks, with their kids, with clients, on vacation…Our employer branding team wanted something easy to learn, fast-paced, and versatile, something you could play with just a couple of people or with an entire group, something with tons of replay value - a card game was a no-brainer. There was just one small detail left: What will the symbols be?
We decided to crowdfund the brainstorming and sent out a public call in our general Slack channel: Which emojis represent Ataccama best? People seemed to have strong opinions on the subject, seeing as the post broke the emoji limit in our Slack for the very first time :) Ataccamers still continued posting emojis in comments long after the limit was reached, so apparently we were on to something!
