Roundtables on Innovation in Strategic Gaming

Special Session on Nuclear Wargaming

National Defense University’s strategic gaming group, the Center for Applied Strategic Learning, would like to invite you to participate in a special session of our roundtable discussions on gaming. We are departing from our quarterly schedule to take advantage of the visit of experts from AF Global Strike Command to the DC area. We will also stream audio from this event live over the internet, which we hope will make it easier for colleagues outside the Washington, DC area to participate. (Please contact one of the organizers for more information about the audio streaming.)

Each roundtable invites a few speakers to present short, informal, talks on some aspect of strategic-level games to spark discussion among the group. The meetings last two hours and are held quarterly (with exceptions made for special sessions such as this one). Please feel free to circulate this invitation to interested colleagues – we’re hoping this will be a means of getting to know and building lasting professional connections between gamers.

    I remember nuclear attack drill at school c1968, as a first grader. Given that I lived in LA at the time, I’m not sure it would have helped much…
