      In 1978 the French Situationist Guy Debord designed and fabricated a
      board game called "The Game of War." Thirty years later RSG is
      resurrecting this largely forgotten game, translating the game
      instructions from French to Java and releasing it as an online computer
      game. 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?

      Founded in 2000, RSG is a collective of programmers and artists working
      on experimental software products. The Kriegspiel team consists of:
      Alexander R. Galloway, producer and programming; Carolyn Kane, research;
      Adam Parrish, programming; Daniel Perlin, sound; DJ /rupture and Matt
      Shadetek, music; and Mushon Zer-Aviv, design.
