Central War Gaming - Operation Least Weasel 16

Operation Least Weasel 16

7-9 October 2016
Force-on-Force FTX, Airsoft
Osage Beach, Missouri


Winter is Coming!

Operation Least Weasel 16 is the fall offensive between Ardea and the Republic of Kitoy over the decades-long fight for control of the Central Grafsten Highlands. You will be deployed as part of a unit of light infantry to find, fix and destroy (or displace) enemy forces in your area of operations.

This is a force-on-force field tactical exercise (FTX). You will join one side, and fight the other side. The event will run continuously for the duration of the event. Day and night, all weather, without leaving the field for snacks, shopping or sleeping.

Decide if you are Ardean or Kitoi, read the equipment list and rules, register to reserve your place, and make your travel plans.

Date, Time, Location

Payment, Terms

Read the rules and make sure you can meet the equipment requirements before you sign up.

What You Bring

You are motivated, punctual and are physically ready for three days and two nights of activity in any weather and terrain. You have the proper equipment for the unit you are playing, understand and will abide by all the rules, and promise to play the game as intended and not to try to find loopholes. You will demonstrate respect for fellow soldiers, the enemy, the staff and your chain of command, following all instructions and carrying out all orders without (too much) complaint.

You will monitor and respond to your provided contact methods, or designated alternates, to assure you receive changes in rules or equipment, and to allow your chain of command to coordinate with you. The event starts as soon as you sign up, not when you enter the field, so you are expected to work with your squad leader and follow their instructions and decisions as soon as assigned to a squad.

If you must start late, make us aware of that as soon as possible so you can be assigned to a reinforcement squad instead. Please plan carefully so we do not have to change squad assignments at the last minute. Your original squad may end up under-strength instead of getting a replacement.

The following equipment is required for attending Least Weasel 16. This equipment may vary from that required for other CWG events. Conditional equipment is required for some individuals depending on your job, or has rules about what is allowed if you choose to bring that equipment. Optional and recommended equipment which may help you be more comfortable and effective in the field is not listed here. All equipment you bring must meet certain requirements. See the complete equipment list for details.
