The learning objectives of the game include a better understanding of the following:
- Dynamic nature of illicit operations that take place at the tactical level; smugglers are likely to adapt their tactics to circumvent hardened points of entry at borders and other counter-smuggling measures
- Complexities of border security and trade-offs between national security concerns and other important issues (economics/environment)
- Challenges involved in effectively detecting and interdicting WMD-related material once it is out of regulatory control
- Limitations of intelligence for detecting/interdicting WMD-related materials already on the move
