Abstract Along its coast, the Vietnamese Mekong Delta has protected mangrove forests and behind this a buffer zone of Integrated Mangrove Shrimp farms (IMS). Voluntary adoption of IMS beyond the buffer zone is hampered by assumptions of farmers and policy-makers about profits compared to intensive shrimp monoculture. ALEGAMS developed a board-game allowing farmers to experience the financial consequences of their decisions in shrimp farming, and assessed the effect of playing the board-game on farmer's learning and willingness to adopt IMS. The players stated to have learned about Investment 8, operation costs, Management & technologies, IMS' profits, and risks of Intensive shrimp farming. Several month after having played 1-3 sessions, farmer's behavior had changed: slightly higher frequency of weekly consultations and more persons consulted on practices & diseases, but increased suspicion about veterinary salesman, and technology take-up after one training increased from 30 to 43%
