Matrix Game Construction Kit special offer for COVID-19 pandemic response

UPDATE: The Game Crafter has had to suspend operations in compliance with state coronavirus directives. As a consequence, they are not able to produce or ship copies of MaGCK until those restrictions are lifted.

It is still possible to order the game, but neither we nor TGC knows when you might get it.


In partnership with The Game Crafter, PAXsims is making copies of the Matrix Game Construction Kit available at cost ($136.99) to those developing serious policy games to address the current COVID-19 global pandemic. The Game Crafter will treat any such order as urgent and expedite processing to the best of its ability.

Please note:

  • This offer is only available to organizations working on pandemic response matrix games for serious (policy-development or educational) reasons.
  • This is the regular edition of the Matrix Game Construction Kit—it contains no specific guidance or game materials on COVID-19. However, the PAXsims team stands ready to offer additional assistance.
  • To order a reduced-price copy of the Matrix Game Construction Kit, please email rex.brynen@mcgill.ca outlining who you are and how you propose to use it. You will then be provided with a link to the special game order page and additional instructions.
  • This offer only covers copies of MaGCK, and not other items published by PAXsims or The Game Crafter.
