Little Wars

The game revolves around lead soldiers and battlefields made from whatever materials were on hand, usually blocks or other toys. Little Wars is considered by some to be the first modern table top war game. It includes rules for infantry, cavalry, and even artillery in the form of toy naval guns that launch projectiles. In addition to being a war game manual, the development of the game is revealed as well as Wells' belief in pacifism. This link for educational purpose only.

Originally written in 1913 by one of the fathers of modern science fiction, this is a reprint of one of H.G. Wells' lesser-known works. Little Wars will appeal to science fiction fans, history buffs, students of politics and international affairs, wargamers and RPGers, and anyone interested in the other works of this great author.

Features of this edition include:

• Clear, authoritative, and entertaining text that reveals both the great mind and the sense of humor possessed by one of the world’s greatest science fiction authors.
• A complete miniatures wargame system that can be played as-is or used as the basis for other miniatures rules.
• An appendix on Kriegspiel that expands upon Little Wars and shows how it can be adapted into a military training tool.
• Foreword by Gary Gygax, whose development of Chainmail and Dungeons & Dragons were influenced by H.G. Wells in General and by Little Wars in particular.
• Introduction by editor Michael J. Varhola, author of several history books, gaming sourcebooks, and the Skirmisher miniatures rules.
• 19 original black-and-white photographs from the 1913 edition of Little Wars.
• More than 75 black-and-white line drawings from the 1913 edition of the book.
