Simulation games present valuable pedagogical tool in many different areas, e. g. education, finance, production, sales, supply chain, and employment process. The main reason for their usage is that theoretical knowledge is not enough to understand the business processes. Simulation games improve learnig, since they actively involve participants in virtual world and encourage them to apply theoretical knowledge and facilitate their understanding of business processes. Use of simulation games is increasing every year, especially in students’ and managers’ education, as they enable participants to acquire new skills and learn how to make decision through practice....
