Abstract

Participation rates in muscle-strengthening programs are low. Exergames show promise in encouraging people to exercise, but it is difficult to build compelling games around resistance training. Games involve players making meaningful choices, but workout programs are rigidly structured, making it difficult to find opportunities for such choices. As such, most muscle-strengthening exergames have chosen between engaging gameplay and high quality exercise. To solve this issue, we have developed a muscle-strengthening card game — Brains & Brawn — that exploits and enhances player agency.
