Abstract:

IDAHEX is a model of warfare implemented as a computer program. Usually, no distinction is drawn between the model and the program this manual refers to them both as IDAHEX. IDAHEX can be regarded as a system that is used by the game designer to design a war game and then by the players to play it. There are two sides in the war, Red and Blue, inducing a Red player role and a Blue player role. Although both roles may be assumed by a single person, IDAHEX is careful to distinguish them and to prevent one player from giving commands to the others forces. Although IDAHEX can be played in batch processing mode, interactive use is far more convenient. IDAHEX can be played interactively with each player on a separate terminal or with both players sharing a single terminal.
