The Document Adventure begins!

MyQ Tabletop Game 2020  

Gather around a table and dive into MyQ’s first very own print, scan & copy board game! Players go through the adventures of the printing process, overcome setbacks on the way and eventually get their documents happily through. Curious what happens and how MyQ can help in your own printing journey? Take hold of your game piece and roll the die!  

Choose your character and check out the rules!



The goal of the game is to be the first player to get his/her task printed, in other words, to be the first one to enter the “FINISH” field. To make things more interesting, there are several “special fields” you can step on and that have either positive or negative effects.

At the beginning, each player chooses a game piece of a different colour. Of course, you can also choose to play with a piece of your own, like a thimble or something similarly small.  

First, all players roll the die. The player with the highest number begins the game, and others follow in the clockwise direction.  

The game begins! Every turn, the player rolls the die once (even if it’s a six) and moves forward by the same number of playing fields. If the player steps on a “special field”, he/she follows the instructions. 

There is one rule that is valid during the whole gameJob roaming. Job roaming gives users the ability to print jobs that had been saved on a different site server. And as with MyQ, you don’t have to be held up unnecessarily every time you land on a field where another player is already standing, you move one field in front of them. If this new field is a “special field”, follow the instructions as usual.  


Special fields: 

Field No. 2 – Pull Print: Printing is 3 times faster – move 3 fields forward. Pull printing with MyQ allows users to
pick up their documents at any printer that is free. Users’ jobs are stored on the MyQ Server and wait until their owner releases them securely by logging in, e.g. with their ID badge or the MyQ Mobile App.
