Free, Ready to play, Nothing to install, No need to register!
Economics-games.com is a free educational games site for teaching microeconomics, industrial organization and game theory.
Choose the game you want to run, enter the number of players and that's it: You just have to communicate their logins to your students and have them connect to the site with their phones, tablets or laptops. You can then observe and debrief the game through your interface.
(COVID-19 Response) We are making the individual simulations of our other, commercial, website available for free until the end of July 2020 (IO Game, Carbon Game and Airline Game). Your students can directly hit the 'Play' button, on the game page. Or, if you want access to an administration interface, you can send an email to email@example.com (with subject 'Access to the admin interface', and mentioning the number of students and the simulation).
Generic Matrix Game (2 to 4 actions)
We are adding a new generic (2 to 4 actions) customizable simultaneous game:
You can customize the payoffs along with the number and names of actions.
You can decide to shuffle players each round or to keep the same pairs all along the game.
You can decide to block/unblock students at the end of rounds, in order to manage the progression of the class or to end the game (if you want to end the game at a random round, the best is to randomly draw the total number of rounds and to block the game at the end of the last one).
You can show or hide the cumulated payoffs of the participants, at any time.
