Update on the Next Patch PDF Print E-mail
Here's what's going on. We have been working on the next patch which features a major new item, replay! We have a few more kinks to work out, but this will be an official patch. NSD has been selected by MST Technologies, Inc. to help create a training class for the US Army and provide SOWGB games for the graduates. We still have work to do on this one, but that makes 3 different places in the US Army where they are using SOWGB! The team is also working hard on a new mappack. This will be the first NSD release with maps by our new mapmaker John Bonin. He's doing a fantastic job. If you make it to the Gettysburg Battlefield this year, you should be able to find SOWGB on the store shelves in the museum store and also in one of the downtown stores. If you see the game, please take a picture and post it. It's just cool to be there

SOWGB - The Research Paper? PDF Print E-mail

Every once in a while we search the net to see what's being said about the game. During a recent search we were pleasantly surprised to find a research paper written by Mark Mullen at George Washington University. It's cool because he gets it! He knows why we make the game the way we do and you all play. He understands the dedication to creating a realistic experience. Since it's public on the net, I guess it's safe to share:

United States Army College Selects Scourge of War: Gettysburg for Senior Officer Training

In a testament to the battlefield realism, historical accuracy and quality user experience of the game, the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas has chosen Scourge of War: Gettysburg for inclusion in its suite of classroom training simulations. The Army is using the game as part of its professional education program for developing the next generation of senior Army leaders.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg is being used in two different Fort Leavenworth classes. The first class trains Simulation Operations Officers and will use computer driven simulations such as Scourge of War: Gettysburg in combination with classic map, rulebook and dice war games the Army traditionally uses.

The second Mission Command class trains students in how to exercise command and control on the battlefield. This class will use Scourge of War: Gettysburg to simulate key action on the first day of the three day Gettysburg battle, including a multi-user Rapid Decision and Synchronization Process. They will use a scenario that puts the student in the command position of Union General John Buford or Confederate General Henry Heth, thus imposing the unforgiving real time pressure of battlefield command.

The US Army Command and General Staff College educates and develops leaders for full spectrum joint, interagency and multinational operations; acts as lead agent for the Army’s leader development program; and advances the art and science of the profession of arms in support of Army operational requirements.
