Okay. The game is actually 'Losing the Lake' and it is a simulation to keep enough water in Lake Mead so that Las Vegas can keep growing like a weed for a few more years.
We had a presentation on the game at yesterday's meeting of the External Technical Advisory Board of the Nevada NSF EPSCoR. The project developed it as an educational tool for local schools. It is not to be used as a management model. As you will see, it is not very sophisticated but it is not supposed to be. It makes its point very well.
When you play you'll make some decisions both as a homeowner and a water manager. Yes, you can try to out-Mulroy Pat Mulroy herself!
There are three levels of difficulty.
Interesting to note that 'Control population growth' is not allowed as an option to reduce water use. You can click on it, but an explanatory box pops up.
It won't take much of your time, and you'll learn something in the process.
