Incident response tabletop simulation exercises allow training people in skills related to reactions and processes in crisis situations. This paper analyzes several experiences of tabletop simulations that resulted in learning of practical utility for the participants. After applying the traditional approach based on conversational interaction, and the modern approach based on interaction through virtual platforms, a new, more accessible and scalable modality was proposed, developed in free software, which allows taking this practice to any environment. In addition, it was found that the exercises carried out in educational environments improve the learning of the topics for both participants and observers.
