Benefits of playing Supremacy
Everybody remembers WarGames right? What exactly are we teaching here anyways? Isn’t it bad to teach kids about war? It’s bound to lead to trouble somehow right?
The truth is that education and knowledge are power. Reality is that mankind is faced with war. Given that, it’s best to understand it. Wargames do not teach kids to be violent. So what does Supremacy teach? Here are a few highlights:
- International Trade / Economics
- Competitive free market forces of supply and demand.
- Scarcity of resources: National competition over limited global resources.
- Brinksmanship / Bluffing
- Crisis management
- International Relations
- Geopolitical Conflict
- Alliance formation and maintenance
- Coalition building
- National Debt
- Strategic Global planning
- Superpower status and conflict
- International clout and credibility
Sounds great but incredibly complicated? It’s not. My 8 year old plays it. Supremacy has a way of making the complex very simple and easy to understand. Check out our page on Game Play to see how easy it is!
