Kotaku put up an article today discussing H.G. Wells and his creation of tabletop wargaming.

From the article:

For his work on novels like War of the Worlds and The Island of Doctor Moreau, British author HG Wells is rightly lauded as a visionary.

What often gets lost amongst the applause for his ideas on science fiction, though, is another area he was a pioneer: the field of tabletop wargaming. Which, at least as far as we know it today, was basically invented by Wells while he and a friend were…playing with children’s toys.
