One of the most notable challenges of getting colleagues to try out simulations in political science teaching is the overcoming of start-up costs. In particular, the creation of a scenario from scratch or the adaptation of an existing game can be daunting. The paper discusses these challenges and ways that they can be overcome, through creating online guides and establishing underlying principles, and illustrates this with a number of practical examples.
