CRISP - Crisis Simulation for Peace e.V.

We have been developing simulation games since 2007 and we are still loving it. Our committment to the method exhibits our conviction in the powerful benefits of simulation gaming as a learning-tool. If you are interested in implementing a simulation game with your group, you can choose from a list of already existing games in our portfolio, or get in touch with us and we will develop an individual tailor-made simulation game to suit your needs.

Topics & Formats
