Ideas wanted



Devin Ellis (ICONS Project, University of Maryland) is looking for some game ideas from PAXsims readers:

I am currently wrestling with the mechanics of a planning game I am working on. In terms of scope, it’s strategic and theatre-wide. I am looking for good suggestions from the simulation and gaming community of models I could look at for ideas – with particular respect to keeping the level of detail of player inputs realistic but not utterly overwhelming. Rounds will coordinate roughly to 5 year USG planning cycles, and the background environment is extremely rich in detail and interactive moving parts, some of which the participants can impact, and others which are out of their control. I welcome any and all suggestions for un-classified resources. Thanks in advance!

If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments section or email him directly.
