In 1978 the French Situationist Guy Debord designed and fabricated a board game called “The Game of War.” Thirty years later RSG resurrects this largely forgotten work, translating the game rules from French to Java and releasing it as a free online computer game.
Kriegspiel is produced by RSG. Founded in 2000, RSG is a collective of programmers and artists working on experimental software products.
