|Aim and Purpose|
The aim and purpose of Connections UK is to help bring together two main audiences:
We aren't here to try to make money - Connections UK is a not-for-profit organisation intended to act as a service to the wargaming community. Charges will be as small as possible, sufficient to cover food, venue and whatever minimal administration is required.
We aren't "anti-computer" as these are essential for our work, but the main aim is adversarial wargaming in order to generate insights, innovation and original thought. We feel that there are already enough events dealing with computer based simulation, such as IITSEC, GDC and EGX.
