TEST.

TRUST.

PEOPLE.

How do you prepare, train, and forecast for the unexpected?  Through immersive and interactive multi-day Immersive Interactive Games (IIGs, traditionally called wargames in the common parlance of the previous century), Liminal Operations will help you stress-test strategies, challenge teams, identify problems, and conceptualize futures in realistic, dynamic, but risk-free environments.  From scenario-based discussions to full-scale simulated environments, we allow you to explore the possibilities of failure and success in a safe yet challenging classroom environment, before you face unforgiving consequences.

Games to Build Teams

As organizations attempt to create desired futures, games can be used to develop, implement, and measure plan and procedure effectiveness, and to evaluate organizational performance.  We craft timely, relevant, and demanding immersive and interactive scenarios for your staff to solve, allowing you to discover issues, ideas, and opportunities while honing your organizational skillsets.

Games to Test Strategies

Immersive Interactive Games test decisions against thinking opponents under uncertain conditions. Whether through future scenario planning or move-countermove activities, IIGs generate theories and hypotheses about what the future might look like and how to react. Our games do not prove specific solutions, but rather provide plausible outcomes.

Games to Gain Trust

Our methods leverage liminality, the mental threshold through which Immersive Interactive Games become real to the participants.  Overcoming liminal challenges forges interpersonal bonds as strong as those formed in stressful, real-world environments. Our games may be risk-free, but the challenge, insights, and trust built during shared achievements are real.
