On May 30-31 & June 1st, more than 30 Canadian Forces College students sought to unfold the mystery behind failures to complete the Reconciliation and Prosperity Canal in Nunavut in 2034. In so doing, they seamlessly learned about the tension between sense-making and analytical thinking, problem framing & reframing and deductive, inductive & abductive reasoning. The reflection period triggered several a-ha moments from both game masters, students and directing staffers leading up to a scholarly performance on stage by Prof. Paul Mitchell.

Students recommended this wargame to be mandatory for the entire cohort and beyond. Following this success, the project turned gold with a release date in the Fall for wider distribution. The AOD team is looking for ways to adapt the game to all NATO members and partners, and for partners, investors and donors to develop a digital version. Should this be of interest, contact us!
