People have engaged in warfare simulations for centuries, from rules for playing with toy soldiers to exacting map exercises with rigid rules for military training. Game designer Peter Schweighofer presents an introduction to historical simulation gaming and discusses how wargames serve as a useful tool for exploring historic events, including a simple Civil War game demonstration.
