The simulation game or simply game is simulation or reenactment of various activities or "real life" in the form of a game for various purposes: training, analysis, or prediction. [1]Well-known examples are war games, business games, and roleplay simulation.

Such activities originate in the human prehistory of games deduced by anthropology from observing primitive cultures, where children's games in a significant degree mimic activities of adults: hunting, warring, nursing, etc.

Starting from three basic types of strategic, planning and learning exercises: games, simulations and case studies,- a number of hybrids may be considered, among which are simulation games and simulation games used as case studies.[2]

The comparisons of the merits of simulation games versus other teaching techniques have been carried out by many researchers and a number of comprehensive reviews have been published.[3]
