Clug; Community Land Use Game. Player's Manual with Selected Readings.
Feldt, Allan G.
CLUG (Community Land Use Game) is designed to provide players with an understanding of several underlying factors affecting the growth of an urban region. It has been used with players from junior high to graduate school and also with non-students. It unites concepts from sociology, economics, and geography. Players invest in land, construct buildings of various types, and seek ways to fit their investments into the evolving local economy to make a return on investments. Players compete with each other, but also learn to cooperate with each other for some purposes. The package includes rules and strategies for players, readings which pertain to issues highlighted in the game, and an instructor's manual. A series of "experiments" modifies the basic rules of the game and allows players to explore systematically the effects of urban phenomena like municipal finance, land use regulation, and environmental pollution.
