Origins War College: What would it take for you to participate in a team game with us?

Hey everyone -

I'm just wondering what - if anything - people know about the staff wargames we run at the Origins War College, and what it would take for you to come check out one of them and join us for a game?

Players take on roles in a military staff and plan and execute an operation using a wargame... gotta keep up with current situation and changes to the plan while the fight's going on. It's a ton of fun We get a lot of folks coming back year after year.

You've got an assignment within the command post in a military unit and during the course of the battle you manage your appropriate functional area, as the operations guy, or the intel guy, or fire support guy, and you're all working together against the OPFOR. It's a cooperative experience that's well-guided along by Dr Sterrett and the rest of the gang that's been doing this a few years. There's no "wasting time" because at some point the enemy comes rolling over the hill.

The only exception to the "cooperative" model might be Persian Incursion, which will be head-to-head teams if we get enough people.

It's a chance to learn what a military exercise looks like, within the context of a cooperative game, and play your way through the scenario in near-real time.

Jim, you're required.  In fact, I think you're officially on the packing list, aren't you?
