More than 160 National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadet officers yesterday tried their hands at Guardians of the City, a new Total Defence strategy card game. Based on the threat of terrorism, the game educates students on what to do during a crisis.

Developed by avid gamer Wan Junyan, 41, a deputy chief executive at an entertainment firm - together with the Defence Ministry's national education office, Nexus - it is expected to be rolled out to NCC cadets and selected upper secondary school classes in February next year.

On his Facebook page, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen praised Mr Wan's work.
