Bolshevik Revolution.
Hueston, Stephen P.
Suitable for use in a high school social studies course, this class game simulates the political interaction and general unrest in the nine-month period following the death of Tsar Nicholas II in Russia in 1917. Eight class groups take the roles of the leaders of the following political factions: the bourgeoisie, nobility, Socialist revolutionaries, Mensheviks, moderate Bolsheviks, radical Bolsheviks, the army, and the navy. Each group begins with a number of power points, ranging from 200 for the bourgeoisie to 20 for the navy. In each of 9 rounds of play, representing the 9 months of action, 8 operations are performed as follows: election of ministers, organization of government, confidence vote, determination of number of dissidents, reform legislation, reductions of Mensheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries, riots of workers and peasants, and influence of other dissidents. Each of these operations is described in detail and the point award system for determining winning groups is explained. (LP)
