The community of the Valley consists of farmers and people working in one of the local organizations: Local Government, Water Board, Local Development Office (LDO), Bank and Environmental Non-Governmental Organization (ENGO).
The Farmers use their parcels in very different ways. The parcels are of the same size but differ by their elevations.
At the beginning of each year, farmers are presented with the results of their actions from the previous year. They get their hard-earned money from LDO and they can decide if they’re satisfied with their current strategy, or maybe they want to change it.
The Local Government collects the taxes.
The Water Board plans and invests in water infrastructure.
The Valley Bank provides investment loans. Environmental NGO encourages the community to take a greater care of the environment.
During each year, the Valley residents make many transactions between themselves. Filled with joys and challenges, year after year goes by, like the river flowing through the Valley.
The Lords of the Valley game is a laborator for practicing strategy, collaboration and leadership in a complex environment.
