I'm going to try and collect interesting articles on key moments in wargaming history in this thread. I realize for younger folks whose first wargaming was miniature gaming - likely GW, we may not realize where this stuff came from.
Gary Gygax and Dungeons and Dragons brought 'fantasy' to the gaming world. GW literally was making cribbage boards and selling them until they heard about this product Dungeons and Dragons and decided to start selling Dungeons and Dragons it in the UK. http://z2.invisionfree.com/herdstone/index...pic=14010&st=15

Personally, I still remember chainmail. I might even still have a copy somewhere. I eventually put it up for Dungeons and Dragons and other wargames-- even though you could mix them together. Eventually they came out with Battlesystem specifically for D&D. Ah, the good old days.
