Simulation Game Apps

Simulation games can provide hours of deep, complex play. Some sim games are more educational than others, but each requires thinking, planning, and organizing skills. Make sure kids know what kind of time limits they have when playing these kinds of games, and give them plenty of warning before asking them to sign off.
