Labor in the Gilded Age by jacobs.tennyson

A simulation for students (age 12+) who will play the role of fictional but historically based players in labor struggles from America during the turn of the century. The scenario is roughly based on the Great Railroad Strike of 1877.

Great game! Not only did I learn about certain important historical events that occurred during the Gilded Age, but actually having the chance to step into the shoes of one of the poor migrant workers truly allowed me to see how in depth the struggle of workers was during that time.

no way to seize the means of production
no way for the proletariat to round up and slaughter the bourgeois in their homes
despite these glaring flaws 6/10 would unionize again

Nice focus on the subject, but a bit obvious at times. Still, I enjoyed it.

Great game, it really shows the students what options the workers had during the "Gilded Age". However, it lacked gruesome details to make the game more bloody, but overall it was really enjoyable.
Keep up the great work.
