GAMES AND SIMULATIONS

Web-based games

"Fishbanks." This is a common property game. It was originally inspired by Dennis Meadow’s "Fishbanks" game, but it has been heavily modified. It allows experience with the dynamics of renewable resources, competitive interaction in an open access resource, self-regulation, and government regulation of different types. (with John Sterman, Keith Eubanks, and Denis. Meadows

Teaching

Excel-based games

These games require that all players can access a shared drive.

"The Symbol Game." This game simulates the adoption of new technologies when there are significant network externalities. It provides experience with game theory, excess inertia (lock in), and strategic pricing.

"Market Simulator." This is a simulation of market dynamics under different types of asymmetric information. It can be used to teach concepts addressing the market for lemons and potential solutions including: regulation, reputation, third-party auditing, and signaling/screening.

"Game Theory." This is a simulation of a two-person game.  It can be used to show dominant strategies, nash equilibrium, repeated games, tit-for-tat, and mixed strategy equilibrium.

"Shrimp Aquaculture." This is a simulation of an n-person social dilemma. It can be run as a single-shot or multiple-period game. It can be used to explore equilibrium under different conditions.

"Open Source." The game can be used to explore how open-source performance may be maintained through signaling and social pressure. Students participate in teams and decide how much effort to apply to the product. On the basis of results in early rounds, students can change team members. They can also "flame" each other by sending internal text messages.
