"Statecraft allows students to experience first-hand the complex mix of international and domestic pressures that states face in the international system. I've seen my students benefit greatly from playing the game, as they emerge with a much more sophisticated understanding of course concepts. It's one of the best simulations I've found."

How does it work?

Statecraft runs itself throughout the week and is split into "Turns" which are periods of time for students to make and cancel choices. We recommend 1 turn a week or allows 2 to 5 hours of work for students per turn if you want to run Statecraft with multiple turns per week.

How many students can participate?

Whether you have less than 20 students or more than 600, the Statecraft System will expand or contract your world size to fit your class with the optimum student-to-country ratio. If you have a larger class, the system will recommend using multiple duplicate simulations for the best student learning experience.
