The Guide to Simulations/Games For Education and Training. Second Edition.
Zuckerman, David W.; Horn, Robert E.
This guide gives complete information on 613 games and simulation games. In addition, there is a supplementary list of 473 more items which are in development, discontinued, or about which more information is needed. The book is edited for the potential game user, rather than the theoretician or creator. Games are organized by subject, including business, domestic politics, ecology, economics, education, general science, geography, health care, history, international relations, language skills, mathematics, practical economics, self development, skill development of various kinds, social studies, sociology, urban/community issues, and special interest. For each game, this information is given: playing data (age level, number of players, playing time, preparation time, prerequisites), materials needed, comments, a summary description (roles, objectives, decisions, purposes), cost, and producer. Several articles about games and simulations are included, asell as an index and information about a forthcoming edition. (JK)
