A simulation game, otherwise game of status (or mixed game) is a mixture of a game of skill, a game of chance and a game of strategy, which results in a simulation of a complex structure (like a stock exchange, or civilisation flux). These games are quite current through their mirror of modern society.

Its benefit is the representation of complex situations of communal life, interconnections in society, and partial aspects of the economy (for example, the development of the railroad).
