As I recall, Athena was also the goddess of war, or at least military strategy.
Plus there's a really cool and awesome 40+ foot tall statue of Athena about twenty minutes from my house. So how could I vote for anything else? laugh

Good answer, Parzival. For me, Athena was always a bit too cerebral--a suitable patroness for chess, perhaps. I regret that Bellona, as both the embodiment of war and a supplier of wargame terrain didn't make it to the finals.

The statue of Athena near me, in Pavia, Italy, is only 8 meters tall but still impressive.
In reality the statue is of her Roman counterpart, Minerva, but it's good enough for me and as goddess of knowledge, wisdom and war she looks right for wargamers.

Clio is the only one of the nine muses left on the list. None of the other choices fit the question.

I missed the beginning of this, but my choices would be Eris (discord/strife) for wargames, and Pan (panic) for scenarios.
