Prune The Product Tree depicts product features as leaves or fruit on a tree. Players move features closer to the trunk if they are more important, or towards the outer branches if they are more peripheral. Players also cluster features together on the tree if they are connected in some important fashion. For example, a Bluetooth capability for a car stereo might be placed next to a satellite radio option.
In some versions of Prune The Product Tree, the game organizer divides the tree into separate zones, representing different customers, markets, or functional areas. Players then place features in the part of the tree where they play the most significant role.
