Sometimes a game is better then anyone knows!!
« on: October 31, 2017, 05:07:33 PM »
I love the big strategy games and recently got my hands on a game called 'Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron game'. It came very well recommended by those that play these games and even had a WW1 Stimulation!

I began looking for guides and After Action Reports [AAR] to help understand the nuances of the game. Then I found something that made me go WOW!

I found links to the game that showed it has been used not once but twice by the Marine War college. Talk about making me smile and buckle down to really get into the game.

These are for the WW1 Simulation:

This was the one I found for WW2!

Reading the AAR was interesting as well!

What do ya all think? Have you heard of other games that have been used by the military for learning and helping teach strategy or tactical!
