This chapter investigates the development of multipurpose collaborative games. In order to enable this a design framework is proposed for considering, first, the application and usage of the two dimensions (lusory and ludic dimensions) both in literature and decision-making games and, second, its successful deployment in a popular supply chain game. With the increase in tangible user interfaces (TUIs)-based gaming devices such as PlayStation Move, Xbox Kinect, and Nintendo Wii and the increasing ubiquity of TUI-based applications, the authors argue that educational collaborative games should move toward using gestural-sensitive TUIs for the design of educational games for children.
