Dr James Sterrett has joined us before to talk about the MMAS program at the Command & General Staff College, and came back with one of his students in tow to talk about his specific experience in the project. This time, James has brought along 2 of his students to discuss their game designs, the research behind them, and their motivations to join the program. We also talk about the lessons learned in game design, as well as what they’ll take away into their continuing military careers. Dave Millikan and John Beynon discuss their designs – Reconstruction of the South after the ACW and the 1777 Campaign of the American War for Independence, respectively – and the research & playtesting that went into them.
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
We want to thank Dr Sterrett and the US Army Command & General Staff College for the gracious access to their staff & students and look forward to seeing the final results of these designs.
