"Wargaming" is vast. "The future" takes up a fair bit of ground, too. For maybe 40 years, I've watched historical miniatures gamers become a smaller and smaller percentage of total wargamers. Every year, there are higher proportions playing computer games and science fiction and fantasy games. I would expect this to stop or reverse at some point, but I can't tell you when that point might be.

But as we get richer, there is more money to spend on the hobby. Every year we have more rule sets to choose from, and some of the new ones are quite good. And we have reference materials and miniatures available for a huge number of conflicts most of us knew nothing about 50 years ago.

Try to arrange things to minimize the effects of the trends you don't like, and take advantage of the new opportunities. That's the best most of us can do, anyway.

So, fill in the blank. In the future, wargaming will be, will have, or will what? Use your imagination.
