The Game of Fish and Men, Starlogo Edition
This is a game I created for a class (11.127 at the MIT Teacher Education Program), that actually turned out pretty well. Well enough that it was requested that I put it up on the Web for all to play, anyway :-) This game owes a great deal to Casey Dugan, who was my project partner for the Board Edition of it, and, of course, to Eric Klopfer, whose class it was for.
The Game of Fish and Men is a game for 2-6 players. The basic premise is that each player represents a school of fish trying to make their way through a world bothered by pollution and fishermen. The game's interesting feature is that it is a board game, with a computer managed board. Part of the purpose of creating it was to find out how effective a format that is. Feel free to send me feedback on the subject :-) If you would like to play The Game of Fish and Men, you should do the following things:
- Download the Rules (PDF or DVI), and familiarize yourself and all the players with them.
- Get two decks of playing cards of the same size
- Play the game as a Java Applet (requires Java)
