    Many moons ago when I did my teacher training (95-96) we did some workshops with the 5 simple business games by CRAC - Gorgeous Gateaux was one if I recall.
    Just wondered if anyone still had access to the worksheets for these. I know I have found an excel version on Duncan Williamson's site, but amazon et al state the originals are out of print now.
    Anyone able to help by pointing me in the right direction

  3. There is a video of gateaux galore on the teachers tv website with the resources to go with it. Its about sales and profit. If it is the one you are looking for just search sales and profit and it comes up. Hope this helps!

    I have the original booklet (yellow & blue) along with the BBC disks in front of me! Had forgotten all about these. The five games were:
    <ol>[*]Gorgeous Gateaux[*]Fresh Oven Pies[*]Dart Aviation[*]The Island Game[*]The Republic Game</ol>I've used an adapted version of Dart Aviation in the classroom with great success.

    That's fabulous but how feasible would it be to get a copy of them from you? I am trying to get hold of them to create some modelling exercises using spreadsheets.

  9. Hi Staffam
    Just seen the comments, I would be most grateful if you could send me the details. I am after the Dart Aviation Game in particular.
