This paper describes a simulation game used to assist students to understand the operation of TCP/IP. The game is used in a telecommunications management course taken primarily by MIS majors at the senior level. 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 consumes about one hour, and anecdotal evidence suggests that it is help to the students.
