System Imperiled! Revised Edition.
Slaughter, Richard A.
SYSTEM IMPERILED, a game simulating the basic features of the "balance of power, focuses on the power relationships among states in an international system. Primary activities of the game are the exchange of power units, formation of alliances, and making war and peace. Role-playing is not specifically built into the game, although it may be introduced. Two basic structures of the international system are suggested, but this too may be altered to meet the need of the class. The game is easy to direct and play, and may be run during a single class period. This publication contains the necessary elements for playing the game; a director's (teacher's) guide, copies of participant rules, samples of the forms to be used by participants, and readings entitled "Balance of Power and"Changes in the International System Since 1945."
