The first comprehensive, systematic, illustrated guide to designing games and simulations for use in teaching, training, policy-making and research. Greenblat covers both model development and how to translate a model into a game format. She covers such practical steps as: setting up objectives; making decisions about representation; how to construct, field test and modify the game/simulation; how to prepare it for use by others - including preparation of an operator's manual and arranging its publication.

The key element of Designing Games and Simulations is the extensive set of illustrative materials. Four case studies of design are described at length; more than 70 games and simulations are used as examples and 92 figures show how top designers have made different decisions.
