As a parent, and having a professional interest in games-based learning, I cannot recommend this highly enough as an entry into the world of Dungeons and Dragons: supports creativity, collaboration, Literacy and Numeracy.

Compass Games Agreement

It is with great pleasure to announce that Compass Games and I have just signed a formal Agreement that will see them publish my design of the simulation, ‘The Troubles: Shadow War in Northern Ireland 1964-1998‘.

It was imperative that this subject matter be afforded the precision and attention to detail that it – and the many thousands of lives affected – deserved; I am privileged that an organisation such as Compass Games will deliver this product with such important demands.

The Troubles makes its final journey to the table; to tell its story – honestly and immersively.
