Empire | the board game from Reed College edit / delete

"Empire is a turn-based eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal (and very occa­sion­al­ly mil­i­tary) strat­e­gy board game, with roots going back to 1938, most­ly devel­oped in the 1960s and 70s by Reed College stu­dents in Portland, Oregon. It is com­plex and addic­tive, reward­ing care­ful long-range plan­ning, but at the same time it allows for free-form cre­ativ­i­ty (with the con­sen­sus of oth­er play­ers)."

Some interesting advice on balancing simulation realism with playability in games. (Honours students will probably want to read it and either cite it or argue against it, as appropriate.)
