Info Chess

The game of chess has a long been associated with war gaming. Chess is a tool for learning competitive strategy, information operations and information warfare. Info Chess was developed by the Man Tech Security and Mission Assurance as a war gaming tool. Info chess uses three chess boards; there are two competing teams and one control team. The competing teams are in separate rooms and do not see the other team's board. Teams use information denial, deception, and intelligent collection to gain the competitive advantage. The game’s purpose is to teach the principles of integrating psychological operations, military deception, operation security, electronic warfare, and physical destruction. Info Chess simulates a battle arena where neither side has complete and total knowledge of the other side's strategies and tactics.
