An Overview
SIMSOC (which is pronounced sim-sock and stands for simulated society) is the most versatile role-playing game in the world. It has been used by hundreds of thousands of people and tens of thousands of groups, in introductory sociology courses and business seminars, for firsthand understanding of the forces that determine success or failure in any group or society.

  • Simpler, streamlined rules.
  • Increased size levels so that SIMSOC exercises can accommodate up to ninety people.
  • A way to simulate generating private capital through direct investment.
  • Numerous options covering everything from cellular phones to e-mail, which can be used at the coordinator's discretion.
  • Readings from professionals and popular authors like Robert Putnam and Nicholas Lemann to address issues important to sociologists and managers of complex organizations.

Use
SIMSOC is appropriate for any group that wants to learn the nature of group dynamics and leadership or social organization and control. Big businesses like MGM and Lucent Technologies, charitable organizations, and local governmental agencies have all found it a useful teaching tool for over thirty years, as have college- and graduate-level social science students.
