Renaud (1987) establishes the essential properties of a simulation game, describing it as a simplified and dynamic model of a real or hypothetical system in which players are in position of competition or cooperation, rules structure player actions, and the goal is to win. Greenblat (1988) defines a simulation game by explaining that its environment and participant activities have the characteristics of a game: players have a role to perform and a goal to achieve, with actions needed to succeed, constraints to be respected and results (positive or negative) ensuing from their actions and from the other elements of the system.
