The Original Wargame
« on: January 30, 2018, 11:09:19 PM »
Someone on Reddit linked this article about the world's first actual wargame "Little Wars", created by none other than H.G. Wells, who'd had thunk?

It doesn't have a lot in common with MW, but I thought it was an interesting read, and I know a lot of you guys like studying rules as well, so if you're curious:
