This activity uses dics and various rounds of play to simulate the spread of a disease and allows students to examine the effect of three variables:  transmission rate (determined by dice roll); duration (determined by number of rounds of play) and virulence (determined by infecting 4 or 8 neighbors).  This activity fits well with the epidemiology model to discuss these variables before beginning to model a specific disease.
