Learn about insurance with NRMA’s board game Help!

Ahead of the bushfire and flooding season, NRMA has launched Help! The Game, a board game based on Australia’s real life risks and natural disasters.

Right in time for Christmas, Help! The Game ,will be sold in Kmart stores and online, with a portion of the proceeds from each sale going towards the Australia Red Cross to support disaster relief.

The game, developed by CHE Proximity, focuses on collecting assets such as cars, homes and possessions, and protecting them with giant domes that represent insurance, because “just like in Australia, you never know what is around the corner.”

Help! is based on real life risks and natural disasters

NRMA Insurance director of content and customer engagement, Zara Curtis, said: “We’re always looking at new and innovative ways to help Australians understand risk and the value of insurance. What better way to capture the attention of Australian families this Christmas than by creating something that helps bring insurance to life in a fun and engaging way.

“Interpreting the rules of a board game always creates debate around the table, so it’s exciting to be breaking category norms and consumer expectations with the launch of Help! The Game. We’re excited to partner with Kmart this Christmas.”

Help! has been launched with a campaign running across series of films, OOH, social, digital, PR and e-commerce activity. The game retails for $25.

CHE Proximity chief creative officer, Ant White, said: “Your insurance policy might be the last thing on your mind during the holidays, so Help! The Game has been created as a fun way to get people thinking about risk and protecting their assets at the table this Christmas. We used claims data and real insurance terms to shape the gameplay and turn protecting your assets into something to compete over and even earn bragging rights for.”

Over 30,000 games are available for purchase from November 8th, 2020. The game also has its own dedicated online store,

CHE Proximity is also behind NRMA’s ongoing ‘First Saturday’ campaign, which encourages Australian homeowners to prepare their properties for the bushfire and flooding seasons by taking the first Saturday of every month to take a preventative measure.
