Urban Games: Four Case Studies in Urban Development (Operator's Manual and Player's Manual).
Monroe, Margaret Warne
A series of role-playing, operational games based on the Policy Negotiations model developed by Dr. Fred Goodman, Michigan, is presented in this set of books, an Operator's and a Player's Manual. Policy Negotiations is a game process that involves playing a priming game in order to learn the procedures and rules of the game so one can design and play his own game. The four priming games described here--Community Issues, Rapid Transit, Industrial Park, and Regional Shopping Center--all convey the game process while utilizing individual subject matter around a common urban theme. The Operator's Manual is for the individual who will lead the game session. It includes a discussion of the value of operational games in the learning situation, the rules of the Policy Negotiations model, a discussion of how to set up and run a gaming session, the four priming games, and a suggested procedure for building a game on the policy Negotiations format. The Player's Manual contains a general introduction to the model and scenarios, role descriptions, and issues for four priming games. A list of steps to simplify the process of building a new game is also included. (BL)
