On that same theme, Robert Hossal continues his own reflection on the challenges of designing a generic insurgency  wargame at his SmartWar blog.

The University of Kentucky Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce conducts a major crisis simulation for student each year—and this year it addressed cybersecurity. You’ll find the simulation news blog here, and a history of past simulations (via Twitter links) here.

    The asymmetrical, insurgent, and irregular warfare thread started up with the website I have been working on for the past 18 months at http://www.consimpublications.com but the topic steered a bit off course for my site (focused more on modern conflict) so I moved it to it’s own announcement thread http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/938692/the-original-magic-discussion-thread. For those interested in ConSims dealing with the period from 1946 – Present. Now fully operational it offers forums, videos, podcasts, a blog and a library of titles to read and learn about. All are welcome to visit and explore this fast growing area of conflict simulators.
