Technical Requirements

Trading Floor

The Trading Floor game requires approximately 300Kb of bandwidth. You will need a link from the computer connected to the game screen to one or more projectors and screens, depending on the number of teams taking part and the size of the hall.

You will also need an audio feed to a PA system for the TV and radio news bulletins. If you are playing a background music soundtrack you will need a sound desk with at least two channels with a separate audio feed from the music source.

You will need to download Adobe Flash to play the game and Adobe Acrobat to view and print the game materials PDFs.

To display the game at full-screen use the F11 function or Alt+Return keys.  These functions work in Internet Explorer but not all browsers support them.
