In 1978 the French Situationist Guy Debord designed and fabricated a board game called “The Game of War”. Thirty years later RSG is proud to release a new free online computer game inspired by Debord’s largely forgotten work. We explore the contradiction between Debord, a symbol of radical politics and art in 1960s France, and the Napoleonic war game he created. In Debord’s own words the game was the only thing in his entire body of work that had any value. Was it nostalgia, or a vision of things to come?
