In today’s session, attendees will take on the role of Roman Senators during the waning days of Rome’s Republic. Popilius, famous for “drawing the line in the sand” during a wartime intervention in Egypt, will be placed on trial to determine whether his actions were in the best interest of the Roman state. This highly interactive game will see attendees build a realistic character, create questions designed to gain answers about Popilius’ actions, and formulate a plan of action within a small group. From there, a full on Senate hearing will be held in which Popilius’ fate will be determined. This session is geared to generate ideas about using roleplaying games and scenarios to improve the workplace, team, or classroom. The session will conclude with a debrief of the game, as well as a Q & A to help attendees think about their own activities geared toward specific goals, whether it be leadership, teamwork, or skill building. In our case, we’ll see whether Popilius gets the thumbs up or thumbs down! Will he stay or will he go?
