About this Game

The main purpose of this game is to help faculty, alumni, and current students at UBC learn about our unique sorting system. You may be suprised at how some items need to be sorted. Alongside the goal of educating, this game also will collect data about how users sort common items, helping UBC better understand behaviours and attempt to rectify them through various initiatives.
