Built for conducting team-based strategic wargames online.
WarPaths is an online wargaming and decision simulation platform designed to elevate your organization’s strategic thought on pressing political / military challenges. It is designed for national security professionals and students.
It is equally effective for both classroom and operational environments.
Conduct team-based wargaming of strategies with distributed participants over an indefinite/ controllable timeframe. Spend a few days, or a few months, diving into geopolitical issues of your choice.
Choose to employ any or all aspects of national power in turn-based geopolitical competition. You are free to focus on diplomatic, military, economic, informational, or other actions in your simulation.
Take a global approach
The main map interface captures a global situation. It uses colors to represent conditions in countries and regions based on design choices by the user. These conditions can be used, for example, to represent the extent of foreign influence, internal stability, economic development, or others.
Icons represent high-level military units, key political locations, crisis events, refugee camps, and others. The icon system is highly adaptable.
WarPaths provides key advantages over a traditional wargame
As a web application, it allows you to conduct a decision simulation with distributed participants.
A WarPaths game can be conducted asynchronously, providing time for teams to reflect more deeply on their strategic arguments.
WarPaths allows you to better integrate your simulation with normal business operations, rather than trying to cram a wargame into a large, single event.
The simulation can be reset and rerun at your convenience to explore challenges from multiple angles. Plus, you can explore new strategic questions, build in new teams, and change users.
War Paths can easily transition between remote and in-person strategic wargames by adjusting the time allotted for each turn.
