Class Wargames, a book with an unusual take on wargaming (as a revolutionary agent against spectacular capitalism) is available online here: PDF link for anyone who fancies a very different and subversive view on the benefits and possiblities of wargaming

Scanned and I find it a very valuable work. Please print as many copies as you can just in case you run out of toilet paper.

This is what happens when people with no sense of humor try to play games. Substantially overpriced at free.

Spectacular capitalism, as opposed to unspectacular capitalism?

Should be meeting the author soon if it's the book I think it is :)

The author is the man in charge of Jeremy Corbyn's digital engagement team IIRC?

Spectacular capitalism is where there is plenty of "other peoples money" to play with.

Uhm, what? How? Why?

I'm not sure what "spectacular capitalism" means, but I suspect understanding the term involves inhaling controlled substances in copious amounts. With lots of arm waving and emphatic table pounding, provided one can still find the table.

Pass.

Oh, it's a euphemism for government then.
