Heavy Games: Nuclear Poker and Past Perspectives

  • September 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Vinay Gupta (@leashless) and Ian Willey (@ian_willey) will be talking about Nuclear Poker, a game that is as incendiary as it sounds! Nuclear Poker is described as 'a fun game about the end of the world' and 'like Risk but only 10 minutes long'. It's a turn-based card game which provokes some deep thinking. Read a bit more about it here.

Jim Wallman will be talking about crisis gaming AKA wargaming. Jim has developed a series of games called Past Perspectives to teach, among other things, critical thinking, crisis response and organisational development.

      Thanks Ian! I'll see you next year I expect, as I'm moving to Burma on Oct 26th for 6 months with my wife (she's Burmese). I'm always amazed by the diversity of your projects - keep it up :)
