Abstract

The game MINE has been developed for the analysis of regional water policies in open-pit lignite mining areas. It is implemented for a GDR test area. The purpose of the game is above all to teach decision makers and their staff in mining regions in order to get a better understanding of the complex interrelated socio-economic processes with respect to water management in such regions. The game is designed to be played by five groups of players representing municipal and industrial water supply, agriculture, environmental protection and lignite mining. Two versions are available, one in BASIC for simple micro-computers as the Apple II combined with a gaming board, another one in FORTRAN for the VAX or ALTOS combined with sophisticated color graphics.

The paper describes the game, its practical application and first experiences in playing the game.
