Joseph Morschauser was born on this day in 1924. Old school war gamers will be familiar with his book: ‘How to Play War Games in Miniature'. A new post on Table Top Talk will give you a little more insight into his life; a short autobiographical piece from June of 1961.

Enjoy your day with family and friends, and later pop on over and enjoy a short read about Joe Morschauser.

Very informative … and a fitting memorial on a Joe's birthday.

Joe's book was my introduction to the hobby; I found it in the Library, and acquired my own copy years later.

some of his ideas were so far ahead of its time that he does not get the credit he should.
