Lifeboat scenarios – now that we have Counters that can be accessed across multiple cases or multiple players, you can have several people compete with each other on different machines.

The concept behind the Lifeboat is that the skipper of the lifeboat has to balance out scarce resources, such as first aid items, fluids, food, between a number of sick and needy cases. If you allocate too much saline to one case, you will not have enough to resuscitate another case. Sometimes, the choices you have to make will be stressful, with no easy way out. But better to make these choices in an imaginary situation than for real.

These types of scenarios, where you are balancing needs and resources, are particularly useful for triage type decisions.
