  * Introduction Simulation Exercise require no knowledge of economics. The objective is to learn about the reports/information within the game.

**Practice games can be graded or not graded, and assigned to the individual or team. We recommend individually played practice games set up to mirror the Team game or build up to it. (i.e. level 1 game with only two decisions, to a level 2 with four decisions).
