Wells' "Little Wars" and Gettysburg
Here’s a BBC News article from a few days ago about the wargame HG Wells designed, illustrated with some recent pictures of a “Little Wars” version of Gettysburg. The “Little Wars” name is amusing from an A&A boardgame perspective (though not from an A&A Miniatures viewpoint) because the scale is hardly “little”: the Gettysburg game is being played in a back yard rather than on a table, and it includes what looks like an HO scale model train.
I like how HG Wells was not bothered what happened to his soldiers. How very WW1General of him!
