The Business Simulation Game

Business games by Virtonomics: Testimonials and reviews

Pavel Durov, The founder of Telegram

“US pilots started to hone their skills on flight simulators as early as in the 1970s. It proved to be cheaper, and in some cases more effective, than training sorties. Today, anyone can get the basics of driving by using driving simulators, in the same way that someone can learn how to build a company through business simulators, such as those offered by Virtonomics.”

So, why do our users choose Virtonomics?

Many of them have been playing Virtonomics for many years without interruption. This would be considered unusual for any other game, but Virtonomics is different. Let’s explore why.

The simulation that we offer is not only exciting, but also extremely useful for the workplace, business in general and leisure.

NOVICE ENTREPRENEUR

A year ago, my husband and I decided to open a clothing store. We calculated everything, developed a business plan, and eventually secured a loan. Upon opening the doors, we realized that everything was much more complicated than it seemed to us at the start. We were sorely lacking in real business skills, and as a result, we weren’t able to pay the hired staff. The business simulator gave us practical experience, and a systematic understanding of how our business can work. Virtonomics saved us tens of thousands of dollars and enabled us to avoid a whole host of mistakes that we would have inevitably made. I believe that any entrepreneur should definitely give Virtonomics a go; this is a fantastically effective tool. Now our business has reached a steady profit, and we are opening a second store. Thanks guys!

OWNER OF A FURNITURE SUPPLIER

I have a small furniture workshop. I make inexpensive, but high-quality and bespoke furniture. The number of orders is constantly growing, and initially, it was difficult to manage my capacity. Of course, I understood that it is necessary to expand the productivity of my factory, build sales channels and develop a systematic business. However, I quickly realised that management knowledge is not enough. I have read many books on management over the years, they are useful, but there is no way to try out your theoretical knowledge. I found Virtonomics.com on google, offering a series of business games. I chose the startup simulator “Entrepreneur”. This turned out to be exactly what I needed. I built a virtual company for the production and sale of furniture in the simulator, and began to turn it into a growing, successful business. I actually started over five or so times, until I brought my virtual company to a stable, growing profit. Only after that, I decided to implement some of my gained knowledge into the real world. Since then, I have increased production capacity by 8 times, opened 2 furniture stores, and organized stable supplies. My business is growing. According to my calculations, using the Virtonomics business simulator, I saved about $120,000 in losses. This really was a great decision on my part.

More reviews about our business games:

HMatias: “A really great simulation game. One of the best you can find online, where you compete with real players and have to make hard decisions, just like in real life.”

Matheus Assis: “One of the best business games available. There’s a complex production chain, which is great. You can work in retail, manufacturing or services. Regular realms run one turn a day, so your life doesn’t have to revolve around the game if you don’t want it to. But even so, there is plenty of stuff to do and data to analyze for your life to revolve around the game if you want it to.”

Jase Boom: “Good game to get a basic taste of business. This is a great business simulator to play when you want to get a basic taste of growing a business yourself. The community could be a lot more active and engaging, but nonetheless it’s still a good game to play. Moreover, it’s in real time, so you can play it whenever you want and it’ll keep running in the background.”

SYM: “Without trying, you’ll never know. Virtonomics is an exciting, multifaceted economics game which teaches you ongoing step-by-step strategy. It’s available to a wide range of players and contains a community of real people! I like this game! Warning: this game is addictive! :)”

AEROzot “I was so accustomed to all of these online games targeted at 8 year olds that I actually forgot what a real challenge means. It took some time – but now, I’m totally addicted to Virtonomics.”

pazaz “I enjoy the gameplay and the benefits which I get out of playing this game. I gradually became a better manager at my job, and realized that Virtonomics is probably the most useful game that I’ve played so far. You can apply your in-game knowledge to real life, and it works!”

Ozymandias “OK – so definitely this game is not for everyone, but that’s the best part about it. The distinctive community that consists mostly of intellectuals, such as successful business owners, lecturers, students and overall smart and interesting people, means that for me, this has been the best online community so far. “
