Sunday 6th February
16:00 – 20:00 GMT
Game designer: Jim Wallman, Stone Paper Scissors
Operation Market Garden, possibly the most written about military campaign ever, has been the subject of hundreds of books, two feature films, dozens of computer games and board games. However, the battles for the bridges near Nijmegen has often taken second place, to the dramatic events just up the road at Arnhem.
This game is about the often desperate battles by widely dispersed American paratroopers holding open the road for 30 Corps in its epic dash to relieve the British paratroopers at Arnhem.
This is not a re-enactment – the game will not go as it did historically, players get the opportunity to be innovative and explore some important ‘what-if’ questions and at the same time the game really brings out the real-life challenges and dilemmas faced at the time.
