The game of Minesweeper shows some interesting aspects as it has changed from the original Windows version to other platforms and later versions. The levels are based on board size and number of mines.

Help is provided through the standard F1-key and gives a basic overview of how to make moves. The rules are included as a section in the help. They are explicit.

The game seems to assume two-button mouse control for input.…

Mahjong. Components = character tiles, playing surface, tile holders, toothpicks (instead of money). 2 player or 4 player modes (can also be adapted for single player).

This game is easy to play in basic form. However a mismatch…

Monopoly Empire.
Many of the components are similar to that of Monopoly. Monopoly Empire has some very unique aspects that can be used as samples of Economics.
There are the usual set of rules that come with the game and there are Youtube clips like this one that can explain the rules. The designers in this case Hasbro, are not relying on prior knowledge of the original Monopoly game. I really like this version of Monopoly as it is a quicker game to play as there is a definitive end to the game. I also like the fact that you can not buy houses and hotels so…
