This paper presents a project management game that evolves based on the participant’s skills on time, cost and quality management. The game comes to the construction of a refinery unit whose activities are divided into three phases in which the player acts as the project manager, decides the resources allocation, and ensures that the project meets its cost, time and quality targets. The game was played using a spreadsheet to simulate the project in seven rounds. The dynamic was developed basically in the classroom with engineering undergraduate students divided into ten groups. In each round, the scene was updated by a newspaper that reported the results in graphs and offered some tips. The goal was achieved with the participants making more mature decisions and improving their perception of cost estimates, time and quality.
