Looking For Volunteers to test ITDG
« on: February 02, 2017, 06:14:36 PM »
The Marine Corps Association is about to go live with the 'Interactive Tactical Decision Game' (ITDG) software.

This will give you an idea of what a TDG is:

This will give you an idea of how an infantry battalion is using it:

What I would like to do is try to identify glitches with the ITDG when it goes live.

Is anyone game to do interactive tactical decision games?

Yes.

Is this government-owned software?

James, it is government-owned, ONR developed it.

Check out the article that I linked titled 'Decision Time' it gives S/A on what a battalion at Lejeune is doing with it.

The Gazette just started doing TDGs again last July....very good timing.

Heck I can't even remember to help administer a forum game right now!

But I'm definitely interested.  O0

The GROGPUBLIC OF ROME ongoing forum game thread

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

I talked to the ONR guy, if you guys want to get involved, he's good to go with it.
