You voted for it – TMP link – and now we have the brand-new History of Wargaming board.

Use it wisely!

On the subject of new boards – what became of the proposed Fantasy Sport / Miniature Sports board?

Our Esteemed Editor is undoubtedly mulling over the proper wording for the upcoming poll.

I imagine it is still in the queue.

Early 1970s for me, with FRPG being a second draw to miniature Wargames though board games from the 1960s and toy soldiers from… Forever?

Yes!

My original proposal about this was back in August 2013 :-)

And not being a regular poll voter, I missed this poll completely.

- First wargames convention on U.S. east coast sponsored by the Miniature Figure Collectors of America, in Philadelphia's Essex Hotel, 80 people attend. Agenda included demonstration games from 1pm to 4pm, then discussion session, cocktails and dinner, followed by films and a pipe band concert until closing at 9pm.

Not enough cocktails and pipe bands at gaming conventions these days…

Many will remember the "Sea Shanty" band,or whatever they were,in the dealer room at Gettysburg Fall-In a few years ago. Didn't go over so well,especially with the dealers.

Must have seemed like a good idea at the time. . .
