The History of War Gaming

Not that I have used my miniatures in a war game, I haven’t got to that yet, but I may someday. The “A Timeline of the Historical Miniatures War Gaming Hobby" is an interesting timeline of war gaming. It seems that the first mention of war gaming, as a hobby, was in 1890, however this activity has been being playing out from the dawn of civilization, If you want to call killing, raping, and maiming combatant and non-combatants a like being civilized. The 1890 mention has to do with the gentleman’s war games, those using miniature soldiers, canons, and other toy weapons of carnage being playing out on the floor of someone’s parlor.
