On-site simulation games thrive on the direct exchange between present participants and trainers. In our digitally supported on-site games, the game content — including scenario, background information, and role profiles — is digitally presented (“paperless simulation game”). The software guides participants step-by-step through the game while personal communication is enriched with digital components.
This approach offers the advantage of a more sustainable use of materials and resources and allows for a clearer structuring of game phases and task systems through the integration of digital functions. This includes Senaryon’s task and messaging systems as well as digital feedback from game management. Preparatory units, videos, and other multimedia content tailored to each role can thus be easily integrated into the simulation game.
The integration of digital components in face-to-face events is one of the central lessons learned from the pandemic. Digital tools are indispensable in modern learning environments. Our offering with Senaryon overcomes the rigid opposition of “all online” or “all on-site” and combines the strengths of both approaches.
With the Senaryon simulation game platform, we can meet the needs of customers and participants: with the hybrid “Simulation Game+” format and the “paperless” model.
The “Simulation Game+” solution offers digitally supported games with features such as interactive maps and indicators that react to actions and decisions of the participants. Traditional paper games cannot offer these elements, as shown by the strategy game “Conflict in the Gagonian Sea,” whose interactive map changes based on the political decisions of the participants.
The “paperless” approach uses interactive multimedia formats to convey information. By providing it digitally, resources are saved, and participants are guided through logistical aspects of the event. Features like voting, press releases, and quiz questions contribute to an engaging gaming experience and easier game instructions.
With Senaryon, we bring interactive political simulations to schools in Bavaria. On behalf of the Bavarian Center for Political Education, we have developed four simple planning games that can be used free of charge by teachers in Bavaria.
Unionslabor is a unique digitally-supported simulation game for European education. Nearly 20,000 people have already played Unionslabor. With just three clicks, you can create your own game on unionslabor.de and get started!
Free role-playing games for interested citizens in the public libraries of Berlin. The Association of Public Libraries in Berlin offers three role-playing games developed by us about the work of the district assemblies in Berlin.
Security policy simulation: The “Conflict in the Gagonian Sea” strategy game is one of the most complex simulations on our Senaryon platform. Participants can influence the dynamics of this conflict simulation through over 500 different measures.
Organizational development through the strategy game “New Work” - the simulation of a change process in a company or organization: Negotiate different options as a team, play them out, and test the effects.
Political simulations from the Hessian state parliament with our platform Senaryon. School classes and other youth groups simulate the legislative process and experience firsthand and interactively how politics is made.
Senaryon is already in use at over 20 universities worldwide! The flexible usage models allow for tailored solutions to the needs of universities and students, including a task and evaluation system.
Be a minister for a day and take a seat at the cabinet table - our simulation game at the Open Day of the Federal Government makes it possible! Interested citizens play a digital supported cabinet meeting in a maximum of 75 minutes.
Senaryon as a virtual think tank: For an international expert conference on hybrid threats in Helsinki, we set up Senaryon so that experts could input, comment, and vote on their recommendations.
The “Climate-Neutral City” simulation in eight different languages at schools worldwide! From Czech Republic to India, the Goethe-Institut carries out the games on Senaryon with local teachers.
