Product Description
In this game, students play the role of the 6 different types of government that Aristotle describes in "Politics": monarchy, tyranny, aristocracy, oligarchy, polity and democracy. Students will make binding decisions as rulers or live with the consequences as peasants! The class can then compare the speed, quality and equity of the types of decisions made by these different types.

Enough for a quick and easy game with minimal supplies needed, this lesson contains a few alternate versions for either repeated games or to accommodate different types of classes. The "regime change" version allows peasants to overthrow oppressive governments, while the "non-simultaneous" version allows the entire class to experience all the government types.
