Non-violent conflict

Those interested in using game simulations as pedagogical tools may want to take a look at A Force More Powerful. Not unlike the ICONS simulator developed here at UM, but focused more on street-level strategies and tactics, rather than negotiations, per se.

The really neat thing is that game scenarios can be customized (even based on real-world events), which could offer a really interesting tool to help engage students more directly in the study of civil and political struggles.

The (Windows only) game is available for $20.
