Wargaming in the Twin Cities, 1966






With apologies again for the quality of the scans (given the condition of the original they are the best I could do on my scanner) here is an article and pictures from The Minneapolis Tribune Picture supplement from April 17th 1966.Although some of the print has been lost I think the sense of the article is still there.

I imagine the figures are mainly Scrubies. Also for UK readers, is this evidence of Vic Reeves collecting 54mm figures?

I guess the same Dave Arneson who later on was one of the inventors of D&D?

It would indeed be the same Dave Arneson and also Dave Wesley, who inspired Arneson's Blackmoor campaign with his own Braunstein campaign.

Does anybody know what rules they are playing? Is it Strategos?
