  • Patent number: 5056792
    Abstract: A business education model in which players may simulate the running of a company with the amounts and types of assets, liabilities and future commitments, contingent liabilities, of a company or other business enterprise being shown through the number, color and positions of symbols and markers on a board. The board is marked out with areas representing business premises or factory plant, areas for stocking bought raw material, tokens to represent values of raw material and goods for sale, cash and debts, these different tokens being preferably of a similar size but of different colors so that it can readily be appreciated what they represent, with their value being apparent by their total. The board also includes areas for illustrating the expense of the equipment and manning of plant, for processing cash and loans, for showing the costs of building up a marketing force and for containing tokens showing overhead expenditures incurred in the running of the model business.
