I've used Civilization (not Sim civilization) in a clasroom, though I
have to admit the results were mixed. Some people took off on the idea,
and even could point out the inherent biases in the game. Others just
didn't take to computer "games" or felt they were beneath them. I highly
recommend Civilization. Ditto Sim City, and also the new Sim Island,
which REALLY seems to be an anthropological simulation. Does anyone know
whose tried?
