Wargaming demo

By The Cove May 16, 2019

Here at the Cove, we have put together a video demonstration of a Wargame in order to refresh your memory and brush up your skills. We recommend you aim to do this either prior to your next career course, or in between courses if you are required to participate or observe one as part of a formation headquarters or similar organisation. While the video is not a polished product, it does cover:

  • What is Wargaming?
  • What are the methods of Wargaming?
  • Wargaming actions
  • Key responsibilities & tasks
  • Outcomes
  • Common faults
  • A brief demonstration of a staff Wargame
