Accidents happen. They shouldn’t lead to nuclear war.  Join former U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz for the exclusive launch of Hair Trigger, a new mobile game from the Nuclear Threat Initiative, developed with Simcoach Games. The game pits the player—the U.S. president—against time, luck, and real-life nuclear incidents.

Moniz will be joined by Jess Trybus, Founder and Chief Games Officer at Simcoach Games, the team that developed the game with NTI.
