The game is really good! Can you explain the logic behind it's alghoritm?

I am glad you like it! The game is patterned after real life projects although greatly simplified. Time marches on. Tasks cost money to complete in this case proportional to their length. Staff work to complete tasks at a certain temporal rate and fiscal rate. There really isn't much more logic involved, and I would argue that these concepts are the foundation to understanding good project management. After these simple relationships are understood and understood deeply then a PM student can move on to the more complex concepts of project management. My sense is that many curricula skip this step. I hope to call attention back to it.

Thanks

Jorge, the game has been updated recently so that every version allows you to pause. All of the features that were in the original education variant are now incorporated into the basic game that you already have access to. Let me know if there is anything else that I can do for you. Robc.

Howdy!

I am a Senior Lecturer at Texas A&M University and teach Project Management in the Construction Science Department. Is it possible for me to have access to the educational version? This is a very teachable tool and I'd like to ask if you would have any issues with me utilizing in my classes?

Thank you sir,

Tony, glad you are interested in using the game in your classes! The education version is no longer available. All of the extra features that the education version had are now included in the main game which is online and available for you to use for free.

There are no issues or licensing requirements to use the game in your classes. Feel free to send me an email if you have special needs. Robc.

Great training tool.

Sometimes the team you get can't make time/budget work. Can we get some tools for that? Maybe an expansion, where you get the team first, then say what you think the timeline and budget would look like, with your existing resources?

Hey Joe, thanks for the comment! A couple of years ago I developed an expanded 'senior PM' version where you hired your own team members and they persisted, that is you could use the same team for future more complicated projects. I think I made the game too complicated though since it was not very popular. I am working on something in-between now, something where indeed you can select your team members, train them, and keep them for multiple projects but the new version will retain most of the simplicity of this original game. If you register and leave me an email address while doing so then I'll notify you when the new version is ready to try. I don't have an ETA at the moment.
