History of Nuclear War Series Infocentre

the history of nuclear war series
I first conceived this series in June of 2011. The idea began with DoomYoshi, who was in love with Nuclear Spoils at the time and mentioned to me that there weren't enough good Nuclear tournaments. By a bit of serendipity, I was doing some reading at the time concerning Hahn's and Leitner's experiments, and I formed the idea of doing a grand tournament encompassing the full history of nuclear war from the early experiments to the distant future.

As I gathered maps to go with different parts of the nuclear story, I realized it was just too much to do in one tournament, and so I split it into four. Eventually four became more, and at present the series is expected, including the Grand Finale, to include ten tournaments.

DK's Best of 2011 Series:
There were a lot of new maps in 2011 that really impressed me, and I wanted to honour them.

The nine maps are always the same, but spoils and other settings vary.
