Abstract
This report extends the earlier history of the Canadian Army Operational Research Establishment (CAORE) prepared J.W. Mayne in the area of Research Wargaming, covering the period from acquisition of the War Game in 1958 to its transfer out of CORA in 2004 . It starts with some lessons drawn from early experience with the table top game, then describes the development of the game from its purely manual table-top version through increasing degrees of computer assistance to the final computer based JANUS game. The many series of research war games played in the period are sampled rather than described in detail, in large part for security reasons. The paper concludes with a section of lessons learned over time.
