Game theoretical models can be used for social simulation of real-world systems. These models describe the interaction between actors who have to make a decision. Before application of those models, the game concept that describes the situation at hand needs to be selected. Selecting the right game concept is crucial when choosing a model to simulate the process, but not trivial. In this paper we present a taxonomy of game concepts to select a set of suitable models.
