PAXsims

Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

build-your-own nuclear weapons

The Stimson Center has developed fascinating online education game/simulation—Cheater’s Risk—in which you play the role of a country trying to evade nuclear proliferation safeguards and monitoring. The simulation is interspersed with informative videos which examine both the various routes to the covert development of nuclear weapons capability, and the safeguards that might lead to detection.

For what it’s worth, after my play-through Canada now has a small (simulated) arsenal of 1-5 untested nuclear weapons. Watch out, Denmark—we’ll no longer tolerate all that flag-planting on Hans Island!
