Abstract:

This Note describes the Australian Mine Sweeping Game AMSG. The game represents minesweeping and enables MCM officers to become more familiar with the consequences of various sweeping tactics. The game is designed for a single Player or a team of Players working together and an Umpire. The Umpire can lay a minefield, selecting mines from a list of five types. The scene can be set for the Players, and their performance monitored. The Players appraise the situation, and then devise the tactics for sweeping the minefield. Hints are provided on likely mines in the field. The game will show the Players how effective the tactics they chose proved to be, by showing a simulation of the minefield being swept.
