Fundraising / Persuasion RPG Game Online - Canvasser

Rating: 7.4/10 - 1256 votes

Canvasser is a game for environmentalism enthusiasts and older kids & high school students who love a volunteering challenge. Here, your job is to raise virtual money as part of a team to save ‘Evergreen Forest’ from being cut down in this cool and unique point-and-click game of persuasion!

A canvasser is a person who solicits or encourages contributions, donations or votes for what he or she thinks is a worthy cause. If you've ever done some fundraising or similar non-profit work or if you've been stopped on the street by someone canvassing for contributions, you'll know that it is quite a tough job!

Now, how do you think "you" would fare in convincing people to part with their hard-earned money, requesting donations in a high-pressure social setting? Would you have the verbal and personal skills and persuasiveness to successfully raise money for your great cause?

Reasons to play this entertaining RPG game: Feel good about making a difference in the world and to your worthy environmental cause! Canvasser is a highly stimulating and interactive fundraising game where your goal is to raise money by persuading people on the street to donate to your campaign to save Evergreen Forest!

You play the role of an environmentally-concerned canvasser, and must use common sense, friendliness, likeability, rapport building skills, and verbal persuasion techniques to motivate and encourage people to give as much money as they can to your very important cause. Test your decision making skills as you attempt to choose the correct reply to each person's response. Exercise your ‘people-reading’ skills, but try not to bore or annoy people by badgering them! The cool graphics are reminiscent of old school 8-bit games, and this adds to the likeability of the game.

Strategy to win: In addition to using general common sense and smart decision making skills, fast reactions, great determination and persistence are also really important attributes of a successful canvasser. You play against a clock, with only a certain amount of time to raise the target sum of money each day, so dawdling certainly is not an option here! You must also use accurate mouse clicking - as you don’t want to click on the wrong reply and offend your potential patron! Now, let's hit the streets and get canvassing!

How to Play: A Flash-based fundraising simulation game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers).

You have joined the ‘Saviors of Wilderness’, an environmental activist organization looking to raise $6,000 to stop Evergreen Forest from being chopped down. Each ‘Game Day’, you must raise a target sum of money from local civilian donations. If you repeatedly fail to hit your cash targets, you unfortunately get fired from the "no-nonsense" organization, and that means "game over"! (Yes, just like in real life, canvassing and persuasion certainly is a challenge.)

Before the action begins, you can customize your canvasser character. You then enter a short interview process, and practice canvassing before being sent out on your own for your first ‘day’. When the canvassing action begins, Left Click on a ‘civilian’ that is walking near you (using your computer mouse or touchpad). Some say they are ‘too busy’, and immediately walk off. Others stop and talk to you. Once you have an interested person next to you, Left Click on the blue pop up box on the left hand side of the play area, and then click ‘Give Rap’ to hand over a flyer to your potential patron. From here, you must try to increase the person's interest and trust level before eventually asking for a donation.

You can increase their ‘care’ and ‘trust’ levels by telling them about the campaign to save Evergreen Forest (Click ‘Topic’, and choose the item you want to talk about). If you feel you have gained their trust sufficiently, click on the ‘Target’ option to ask them for a contribution. If the person offers you money, you can ‘Accept’ to add it to your total. Alternatively, you can give them more information (Topic) in the hope that they many increase their contribution based on this further conversation.

Tips: 1) Don't spend too long on one person, you only have a chance to speak to a few people each ‘day’, as indicated by the clock in the top right corner of the game screen. 2) Don't bombard potential patrons with information (Topic) pieces one after the other, as this simply bores most people. 3) Don't push your luck – if you get an offer of a donation, try to increase it perhaps once or twice, but don't pester the person. 4) Every little helps toward the cause. 5) A sense of urgency is essential toward achieving your goal!
