Connections UK 2017 Report

The first day of the conference included a “Wargaming 101” session for newcomers, but was mainly taken up with the Dire Straitsmegagame. This involved around 100 participants, and explored near future (2020) crisis stability in Asia in the context of uncertain and unpredictable US policy, and a rising China.

I’ll say much more about that in a future post, but I certainly think it went very well—everyone seem engaged, the game systems held up, and I think the outcomes were, in a broad sense, quite realistic.
