Introduction:

“Double-blind” games or scenarios are wargames in which each side essentially only knows its own forces and goals, but may only have limited knowledge (at best) of the resources or positions of its opponent. “Double-blind” games are often played with referees, but there have been systems devised over the years that have eliminated such a third party. The KCers took the 2000-2001 double blind scenarios–never previously published–and added two new scenarios to create a 10 scenario pack.

The Double Blind Pack relies heavily on the willpower of its purchasers, because all of its scenarios would in effect be “ruined” if players were familiar with the scenario cards before play. Consequently, purchasers of this scenario pack should force themselves NOT to open it up and read the scenarios, or else they will spoil their own fun. Rather, they should wait until they are paired with an opponent, and then each player can read the materials relevant to his own side.
