Our Values


These are the values that define our business, product development philosophy and our delivery process.

Empower Teams

We consider "Teams" as the number ONE source of continuously improving the agile initiatives through the notion of "inspect and adapt". Through our apps and process, we help the teams to follow the notion of : making more-informed decisions, gathering full-team insights & giving team members the ownership of their decisions. We follow Play, as a TEAM prinicipal.

Simplicity

"Technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity."
-- Erik Christopher Zeeman.
The art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential. We believe in promoting sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

Respond to Change

Over 60% of product or project requirements change during the development. Agile methodologies are based on the knowledge that, in order to succeed, they must plan to change. That is why we believe in reviews and retrospectives, that helps us shift priorities regularly based on our customer feedback.

Planning Poker for JIRA


Play scrum poker with an incredible ease and awesome user experience. Seamless and intuitive game play across the globe.

How to Play??

Once the plugin has been successfully installed, you will see a new menu item 'Poker' in the top navigation and the sprint actions menu in backlog view

Create / Edit Game


Choose from the given set of filters to narrow down the issues for the game. Enter name and description that describes the game and you are set to go. For the sake of simplicity, once you setup the game you can play it perpetually. There is not limit to the number of issues. Issues are pulled into the game based on whatever filter you setup at the start of the game.

Games List

Search Games

Game list view shows most recently added or updated games. User can search a game by name. A game can be in preparing, paused or started state. User can simply join the game either as a host or a player by simply clicking on 'Join' button.

Player Roster


The player screen show all the players in the game. Each card reflects real time status, player name and role (host or player). When the game host clicks on 'Begin Pointing' button, all players are automatically taken to the story pointing section.

Game Play


This is the main hub, the poker table if you will. You can see the dealer (game host) and all the players with their real time status. Once everyone have chosen a point value (by clicking the corresponding card), the cards flip over and an average number (rounded to nearest fibonacci number) appears as the estimate value for that round of the game. The game is locked as soon as all the votes are in or host forces the vote. Anybody can change their vote until the game is locked. The Scrum master(game host) can reset/edit the story estimate value. The host can force flip, move to next/previous story in the game or search a story by its summary/description.

Notifier - Email & Feedback Collector


Thank you for being a valuable customer and using our plugin 'Notifier' in the JIRA marketplace. We are sad to announce that we are retiring this plugin on March 29, 2019. It is hard to say goodbye, but due to a large number of GDPR changes implemented by Atlassian, it will become prohibitive for us to maintain the plugin once GDPR requirements go into effect. Notifier customers will continue to receive support until the end of March 2019. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach our support team at support@theagilegames.com.
