Found this free 1906 Kriegsspiel map ("krigsspillkart") on the Norwegian Mapping Authority website:


12 sheets. 300 dpi so should be reasonably ok to print and play on. Shows an area around the city of Sarpsborg if you want to check the terrain on a modern map for comparison.

For a more authentic look you probably want to water-color them after printing. Or cheat and color them digitally before printing.

It's embarrassing how badly the United States lags behind other counties in putting historical materials online.

Ahhh….but we do a great job in maintaining and interpreting our battlefield sites.

Preservation of the ones where you won – try wandering around Camden!
