Are you a wargaming practitioner? Let's talk!
The International Kriegsspiel Society is building a growing network in the field of professional educational and analytical wargaming. We are eager to exchange perspectives, experiences and knowledge.
If you are interested in Kriegsspiel, we’d be happy to run dedicated scenarios for your professional, academic, or enthusiast organization, taking purpose, requirements, and form into account. We can host live online games for a large amount of players, provide detailed introductions, briefings, maps and game materials. In-person games are a possibility as well, depending on the location and travel necessities.
Let’s have a chat about the prerequisites and expectations and see how we can learn from each other.
Please indicate that you are a wargaming practitioner when joining our Discord server to get access to the professional channels on our Discord server. Or just write an informal introduction and request to Jan Heineman (@Let’s Play History), who’s our administrator for professional wargaming activities.
