“To begin with, from playing the game I learned how to strategically think, how to be a leader, the power of communication, and how to make connections to real-world problems. To start, you learn how to strategize. For example, it teaches you how to plan in order for your actions to reach success. It is a game that requires a high level of intelligence now that it is very complex. You should plan action beforehand and strategize with your team in order to be successful. This game definitely turns a part of your brain that isn't frequently used, which is creative intelligence in my point of view. To continue, leadership is also taught during the game. If there is no one in command, then everything falls into chaos, which relates to the real world. If there is no president or high-level authority, a country collapses. I learned how to fortify my leadership skills in a way I hadn't before, which was basically playing a game that seemed like real life situations. From this experience, I personally assimilated that the power of effective communication and solving problems go hand in hand. And lastly, and certainly not the least, is it teaches you how to handle problems and find solutions. This could be applied to real-world problems, and the ability to make these connections is what the game is really trying to do”.
“While playing this game I not only had a great time but gained lots of knowledge that will in the future have a big impact. From being the weather goddess I learned that organization plays a really important part in the way you handle things because you are capable of analyzing things with greater facility. Apart from this, I learned the importance of deep thinking before acting because a simple mistake can cost you a lot, which is why one always needs to analyze and think about the consequences before taking the final decision. I learned better ways to listen to others and negotiate. I also learned to have more patience especially with my fellow teammates, and that my ideas can always be improved with the feedback of others. Finally, I improved my multitasking skills”.
“I learned that managing a country is really hard. It really helped me to improve my skills of problem-solving and thinking under pressure and that I need to plan ahead of my movements so I have a better outcome”.
“I learned how we need to look deeper into every problem we have everyday which will help us for when we get jobs, during university, and in everyday life. It also helped us in multi-tasking and being aware”
“Since my position as World Bank, I learned how to precisely manage expenses and incomes from a country, keeping track of all their money and their investments as well. It was a very tedious task to do all the math, but it was truly worth it because it was a great learning experience and I ended up enjoying it.”
