"I can think of two novels in which the protagonists are enthusiasts for Avalon Hill wargames:  Roberto Bolaño's The Third Reich and Greg Pickell's Marching on Tuzla. Are there others?"

Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
I played SPI games when I was a lad. If memory serves, the first was "Bloody Ridge."
Your favorite game(s):
Squad Leader: Crescendo of Doom
Squad Leader: Cross of Iron
World at War: Stalingrad
World at War: Operation Crusader
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
Alas, I am not at present playing a game. :O(
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."
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
Far too little.
How big is your game collection?
Far too small.
Your local game club(s) and/or where you reside (let's network!)
We don't have a game club here in Quantico, but we do have a Case Method Club.
About Me
I am a military historian who, for the past ten years, has occupied the Case Method Chair at the Marine Corps University.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
My great passion is the promotion of interactive learning methods within military organizations and, in particular, the US Marine Corps.
