I've created this fun way for students to learn about how civilizations rose and fell in Mesopotamia. Students play this game in small groups of five or less and assume the roles of Ur, Babylon, Sumer and others to compete to become the dominant force in the Middle East by force of arms or by peacefully building wonders of the ancient world. This game is not only fun but demonstrates how farming, technologies, architecture and military power are all connected. Its geared toward a secondary school audience and should have broad appeal in high school and middle school. Please provide feedback and questions!
