Survive and establish a base on Mars. Return to Earth in two years.


2. Which astronaut can become the best leader of the first mission on Mars with the following goals:

Survive, build a base on Mars and build a plant for the production of fuel from found resources. Stay on Mars forever, after three years another group will arrive.


3. Is it a good idea to send people to Mars? Please comment on your reasoning.

Game 4: RUBICON


image

RUBICON is a two-player game developed by Astra Nova. Play this several dozen times to understand how it works, and answer the following two questions:

1.What strategies are most effective in RUBICON? How did your moves change with the number of games played?

2. What changes could be made to RUBICON to make the game even better?

image

Players alternately fill in empty circles

When a player moves two or three times in a row, they must move to the golden square, or the square associated with the existing one.

In the first round, each player makes one move.

Golden cells can be used by any team.

Players can choose different sequences.

To score points, circles must connect continuous paths through the Rubicon (matching the colors of the beginning and end).

If new paths cannot be built on the field, then the player with the most points wins.

Several paths can start from a cell of the same color, but points for this cell will be counted only once. A simple question to check is: “Does the Rubicon cross this path and does it connect to the other side?” If yes, count points for this cell.

Game 5:

A large lake surrounds a large city.

Thousands of people use the lake for commercial fishing, tourism, recreation, and the lake is a source of drinking water.

The company, tentatively called a POLLUTANT, discharges toxic waste from its production into the lake.

The POLLER suspects that its production may be harmful to the lake, but it gives jobs to thousands of people in the city, and any new rules and restrictions could weaken the company. Pollution is the “cost of doing business."

SCIENTISTS, having studied the state of the lake’s health, in the vast majority of cases come to the conclusion that in 10 years the lake will die if the pollution does not end.

A PUPPET MANAGER, who is afraid that the new rules may affect his business empire, decides that SCIENTISTS are likely to exaggerate.

KUKLOVOD decides to form his own research group called Scientists for a Healthy Lake.

KUKLOVOD pays a small group of scientists for publishing fake studies that claim the lake is “healthier than ever.”

A media report says a new scientific study says the lake is fine.

POLITICIANS have the right to stop the release of toxic substances, but they decide that any action against the POLLUTANT is too dangerous, because there seems to be no scientifically based consensus.

VOTERS listen to the media, POLITICIANS, and SCIENTISTS, they are confused and there is a split between them. They are not sure if the lake is dead, healthy, or in a borderline state.

The POLLUTOR continues to dump toxic emissions into the lake.

10 YEARS LATER... LAKE DIES.
