A visit to King’s College, LondonPosted: December 3, 2015
I went up to King’s College today to take part in this term’s session, and after listening to a very interesting talk by Professor Stephen Downes-Martin (of the US Naval War College), I joined in the general discussion about wargame design with the students and other guests.
The range of conflicts the students are working on include:
- Russia 1812
- Crimean War
- Mexico 1862-7
- Paraguay vs. the Triple Alliance
- Ethiopia 1935-6
- France 1940
- Battle of the Atlantic
- Stalingrad Winter Storm
- Normandy 1944
- Bulge 1944
- Dhofar war
- Mogadishu 1993
- Lebanon 2006
As usual this was a very interesting afternoon, and the range of approaches being used by the students was varied and at times quite thought-provoking.
I always enjoy taking part in these sessions, and I hope that my contribution was helpful to some of these burgeoning designers.
