Games that teach collaboration, environment issues, economics, etc.

In today's Occupy Cafe call, my small group started taking about using games or even sports to bring people together about the issues. There are plenty of people in the video game industry that use games to teach or send a message. But there are games that are just fun that also install a sense of working together.

So I want to start a list of games that either involves teamwork, collaboration, and/or teaches about issues.

In a Wicked Age:

A group of players collaborate with each other to create a fantasy story.

After Shock:

The world's first massively collaborative disaster simulation

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
