Cards and events

Plans are built by arranging cards containing events in chronological sequence from left to right.

A completed plan will contain branching event sequences which represent the potential consequences of a decision being made.

There are three types of cards: 

  1. Strategy cards
  2. Choice cards
  3. Chance cards
  4. Milesone cards

Strategy cards

Strategy cards are the foundation of all plans. They contain the different strategies under consideration.

Choice cards

Choice cards represent future choice situations where you will be able to choose any one of the events in the card to occur.

Chance cards

Chance cards represent future chance situations where chance will determine any one of the events in the card to occur, and the best you can do is predict the probability of each event occurring.

You can adjust chance card probabilities by clicking "edit probabilities" in the card menu.

The probability for each event in a chance card needs to be set between 0% and 100%.

  • Use lower percentages when you predict an event is less likely to occur
  • Use higher percentages when you predict an event is more likely to occur

As you adjust the probability for one event the other event probabilities will automatically be adjusted to ensure the sum of all probabilities in the chance card equals 100%.

Milestone cards

Milestone card represent a single event that it guaranteed to occur following a given sequence of preceding events.

Adding cards

You can add cards to your plan by clicking the "+" buttons at end of any event sequence.

Editing cards

You can edit event names by clicking on the name and typing in a new one.

Tip: Try to use short event names to avoid too much text appearing in your plan.

You can add or delete events using the card menu, which you access by clicking the card name at the top right of the card.
