What game(s) have you played recently?
In December of 2016, I designed, organized, and umpired a free Kriegspiel inspired by a wargame run by the British Army in 1907. The scenario called for the dispatch of a "striking force" to assist the Belgian defenders of Antwerp against a "Continental Power."
