Serious games are used to get people together, on their feet and moving, in and around a scenario that speaks to an issue/challenge or set of issues and challenges. You learn more in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. This gets attributed to Plato but it ain’t so, Joe. Not a bad thought whoever said it. There are tasks, X number of dollars each team has, crisis points built in, and the debrief after the 5 hours of playing can be breathtaking. It challenges individual thinking, collective actions, and can get to the core of an issue.
