The Dissolving Disasters Game

This is a resilience game in which players assume the role of subsistence farmers organized into village teams, players make individual decisions that lead to collective patterns of choice and risk. The game features trade-offs between collaboration and competition, as well complex feedbacks and thresholds that enable rich discussions involving key resilience concepts.
