Simulating the Golden Age of Greece
This simulation is designed to “gamify” an educational experience about the classical Greek world. Rather than being presented historical information about the topic, participants experience and discover the history for themselves, as though they were living through it; feeling the ups and downs of being in control of a city-state’s destiny. You’ll begin by creating a fictional city-state and placing it among the Aegean Sea, connecting it to other cities through trade routes and common mythology, and deciding on an overall philosophy for your people to follow. Will your city-state focus on craft, strength, or wisdom? Over the course of “turns” that act like years, this city-state will grow and evolve, based on luck and careful decision making. You’ll be at the mercy of “the fates” pulling cards each turn that indicate positive or negative events that affect your people. You will also have to trade, battle, create works of art, collect “Great People” of different types and constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to grow your assets. The Panhellenic Games, the Athenian Schools and large-scale invasions of Persians are some of these opportunities, to name a few. The simulation’s activities involve numerous disciplines, including but not limited to: mathematics and geometry, science and technical design, artistry, social/emotional learning, physical education, presentation and oratory, writing and even food tasting! It is not necessary for participants to have any existing knowledge of ancient Greece in order to thrive; just a love of gaming! (Grade 6th-9th)
