That's the title of an article posted yesterday (27 Feb 2013) on Foreign Policy Magazine's website. It's subtitled "One-hundred sixty Stanford Graduates take on Iran." Its author is Amy Zegart, a professor at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation.

The article describes the "table-top exercises" or seminar-type games run at Stanford and other universities to teach students international relations through simulations. These types of games involve aspects of both boardgames and role playing games, but they typically involve real world or near-real world political, diplomatic, military and economic scenarios.

The author calls the games "analytic calisthenics." She also says they're lots of fun, and they never have a shortage of student volunteers.
