The Game 

CyberStrike Advanced is a game for up to six players that simulates the complex strategic environment of cyber conflict. The roles available are as criminals, terrorists, hackers, or states, with each role having different capabilites. Players have to consider how their offensive capability matches up with their adversaries' defenensive capabalities, and vice versa; to strike opponents or invest in their own capabilities; to ally with others; to share information or not; and how they can deter future strikes.  

The game is intentionally designed for thinking about the macro, strategic decisions in the cyber world. It does not require or teach any technical aspects of cyber conflict.
