Using the 12-12-12 book as a teaching aid

Not everyone agrees with the author's comments as found in the 12-12-12 book. If they did, perhaps many problems in the World would go away. But why not play a team game whereby the team are in charge of the World? If they form part of a school or college class it must be approved by a responsible teacher who should sponsor the proceedings, to make sure the game runs on track.

The overall aim of the game is to create a class team of 'trainee' World Leaders who will be responsible for bringing about World Peace and Poverty Eradication by the year 2012. Although the course sponsor will ensure very sensitive or inappropriate matters (depending on the student's age and maturity) are not discussed, it is recommended that some flexibility and tolerance is shown as to what the class wish to home in on. Nevertheless, due to the highly controversial content of section 7, it is advisable such matters be left for parents to discuss with their older teenagers.

There are some suggested basic rules to avoid chaos:

The 'trainee' World Leaders still have to report to their teacher who will have the job of being custodian and interpreter of Andronicos "The Great's" Directives.

The teacher will have the right to change these directives.

The 'trainee' World Leaders must obey the UN Declaration on Human Rights. (It is therefore not allowed to form an army, create a School Empire and conquer the World Darth Vadar style).

The end game is to help minimise conflict in the school, create tolerance, create self awareness, and improve life in the community.
