You'll run your own company, manage a feisty crew, and, if you're clever enough, make billions of kubars!trading ship in a fun universe filled with great characters. This a simple, classroom appropriate game that can easily be the basis for many lessons on resource management, economics, planning and collaboration. (Windows only)
    Classroom activity with Plan-ED - I didn't have time to talk about this game, but it's on my blog here. This is a cross-curricular activity requiring mathematical skills (pattern recognition, planning, and analysis) and language arts skills (written and verbal).
    Finding good logic games - There is no "one" great place to find games, and certainly there are great games that aren't technology based. Online, searching for "logic games" is a mixed bag, with some sites that are too ad-filled, and too many distractions for students. If you are interested, probably the best thing is to follow the blogs of logic game enthusiasts, for example PC Logic Games, which, despite the name, often reviews free online games. One site that at least offers good reviews of the games is Caiman Free Games. Just avoid the shooting games and the games labeled "educational".
