Articles of Confederation Game

Why did the Articles of Confederation fail? Your historians will find out firsthand through this simulation activity, during which they will use money (consider using extra credit) to demonstrate the inherent flaws. It's simple: each pupil chooses either red or blue, secretly writing their choice down. Working together for the good of the whole gives the highest payout. However, even one selfishly motivated person can ruin the system. This will get interesting quickly!
