You might want to ask: why use a game?
Can’t you just teach people basic management and economic rules? Well, the answer is: Of course not!
Because human nature is such that makes us interested in something only when we see it as a challenge. Some of the most fascinating novels, the most brilliant movies, and the best guide books, are not appreciated as they should, simply because they do not interact with the reader or viewer. The CEO Game offers something new: an Interactive and serious, yet fun, challenging game that is being updated non-stop.
Sounds nice, so why not play Monopoly?
Well, first of all, you should play Monopoly; fun board games may contribute to your financial knowledge. But this can’t be compared to an online serious game such as the CEO Game.
What is so different about them?
Firstly, you can play the CEO Game, whenever you would like, alone, with friends, in the morning, at midnight, anytime…
The second reason is that nowadays, using the new technologies we discover and develop, we can reach a new level of teaching that has never been seen before, simulating the market, forcing players to consider every move they make, making them face the consequences of their actions, and all of that in a neutral, peaceful world where the threat of losing their job is not over their heads.
The third, and maybe the most important reason, is that in the CEO Game one can study not merely from the interaction with the computer but as well as from observing the actions of fellow participants.
Do I recommend playing the CEO game?
Yes, indeed. The 21st century will sooner or later dictate its own new and modern method of teaching. One must not fear it, but accept it with the understandingthat these serious games have a new capability of making people, wherever internet access is available, enjoy a modern method of studying some of the lessons that a few decades ago one would probably dismiss as a lesson “you can only learn in the real life”. Well Not anymore.
The CEO Game.
