Conflict simulation, peacebuilding, and development

Destination: Connections 2014


On Monday,  both of your intrepid PAXsims editors will be headed off to attend the Connections 2014 interdisciplinary wargaming conference at Quantico Marine Corps Base, for a few days of serious games, conflict simulation, and general gaming geekiness. This year’s theme is wargaming cultures, and we’ll be presenting our thoughts on the multicultural character of most development and peace gaming, which almost inevitably engages participants across various national and professional subcultures. The presentation will eventually appear on the Connections website, but here’s a sneak peak.

We’ll also be running some demonstration games of the latest version of the Humanitarian Crisis Game. If you’re at Connections, feel free to drop by and see if you can save the disaster-afflicted people of Carana! If you want, we’ll also play Jargon Wars with you too.
