No, I’m not talking about the tricks Enron or British Petroleum play on us.  The games listed at this site are all about teaching economic principles – both microeconomics and macroeconomics.

Although my favorite medium is the computer, I should point out that these games do not require the use of a computer … not even a spreadsheet.  Most are playable in a class period and may require simple props.

The site is search-able, so you can narrow in on specific learning objectives rather than search through the 180 games they have amassed.
