Last time I played the World Game (some 5 years ago) it was a big

map of the earth that rested on the floor. Everyone took off there shoes

and stood on it representing 1% of humanity for each person. Thus,

100 people stood on the map, or 50 people if it was 2% each. You stand

perportionally in the appropriate contries and resources are passed out

to the people in those countries also according to the actual portions

that exist in the world. Thus 30 or so people crammed on India got

a total of two and halfs loafs of bread (representing 2.5% of world food

consumption) while the 2 or 3 people in the U.S. got 30 loafs of bread

( I don't remember the actual numbers but you should get the idea).

It was very revealing, and fun. If it is near your town I would go.
