This chapter describes a simulation game used to help students understand the operation of TCP/IP. In the game, students play various layers of TCP/IP on several machines and collaborate to transmit a message from one application to another. The game is used in a telecommunications management course taken primarily by MIS majors at the senior level. The game consumes about 1 hour, and anecdotal evidence suggests that it is helpful to the students.
