Camelot is a town of about 160,000 souls and as such is a fairly typical state capital, with the possible exception being it has no slums and the whites, minorities and students that live there are well-integrated. It has a city council and city manager, organized interests such as developers, media, moral and religious groups, and individual decision-makers roaming through it. It also has budgetary, regulatory, moral and zoning issues. What is unique about Camelot is that it exists only in the minds of the 15 to about 75 players in a classroom. Players elect officers, deliberate in council and informal meetings, and take on any number of 24 community issues raging from a ban on smoking to drug testing to the USA Patriot Act. The publisher also supplies an instructors' edition. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
