I am a gaming nerd!! Everyother Thursday, I get together with a group of like-minded geeks and we engage in German boardgames. Good times.
Over the weekend, while hanging out at my brother’s apartment in Brooklyn, I introduced my family to the world of Corcassonne. During the game, we spoke a bit about other rad board gaming fun. Two that came up were Class War, which I’ve only played once with my friend Andrew, and Guy Debord’s infamous board game, which I have never played.
For those that didn’t know, Debord has a De-board Game. In the late 1960s, Guy Debord (artist, activist, and member of the Situationist International) created a game called Kriegspiel or Game of War. It became available for sale in 1989, although sadly I’ve never played it. But now, I just downloaded a version for computer. I’m ready to rock!!

A bit of history and review of the actual game from the Bookforum, the literary counterpart to Artforum.
