Kingfish Agile Combat Employment is a strategic board game based on the development of multi-capable Airmen. Team building, logistics, and admin concepts are all areas where participants are challenged to work together to dominate the opposing teams in a simulated scenario.

Master Sgt. Jesse Bechtel, 377th Force Support Squadron development advisor, brings Team Kirtland the newest information on how one can get involved with Kingfish Agile Combat Employment.

“We are looking to host games quarterly but are more than willing to host games on demand,” Bechtel explains. “We encourage units, squadrons and teams to reach out and contact me to schedule a game.”

The team already has games scheduled to occur over the next few weeks but still insists that members of Kirtland book their units to participate in this great opportunity.

Kingfish ACE is open to military members and DOD civilians stationed or working at KAFB.

The game requires a minimum of 10-12 players per game and can host up to 30 participants at max.

“Every time I participate in Kingfish, I walk away with something new,” Bechtel remarks. “It’s a great place to learn about other Air Force Specialty Codes and their contribution to the Air Force mission.”
