Gaming the Future with #NextWar: Kaliningrad Fires

By Vicky Osborn May 15, 2019



Our partners at The Strategy Bridge have introduced a series of decision games to help military professionals visualise and describe the changing character of war and warfare.

'Next War' will include a monthly seminar-style game of a future war as part of a broader series on wargaming. Each game is designed to be a short thought experiment taking no longer then an hour to play (with time set aside to compare results with other players).

The first one is Kaliningrad Fires.

Why not play the game and share your findings with the wider military professional network. Results can be sent to benjamin.jensen [at] usmcu.edu.
