MetadataShow full item record
When grandmasters Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky met for the World Chess Championship at the height of the Cold War in 1972, the two squared off in front of an open game board with 16 chess pieces each. Televised worldwide, the duel subsequently became known as the Match of the Century. But how would this strategy board game play out if many of the knowns became unknowns, including pieces that cannot be seen by the opponent? What if a player has less than 16 pieces and the heavy pieces (kings, rooks, knoghts, bishops) could be placed on any square within the starting rows? What if psychological operations and electronic warfare attacks becme a part of the game? How would strategy change? during the past quarter, students in the Defense Analysis Department course "Militaries and Technological Change" discovered the differences first hand in a team board game that includes invisible pieces and terror-war subtleties of attack and defense, The game: Info Chess.
