In this report, we present our process for designing game-based training tools for disaster response decision making. The process began by identifying six different potential game types and mapping them to the challenging decisions and required skills that we gathered in our domain analysis completed in previous work. We document our fundamental design principles, which include game development techniques to ensure that the games produced teach the intended lessons and that the skills used by players will transfer to their operational positions. We describe the complete design process in two case studies featuring serious game prototypes. We analyze the prototypes with a combination of informal subject matter expert SME feedback, artificial intelligence learning algorithm analysis, and assessment of the realism of game strategies used by expert players.
