This blog deals with history, board games and history in board games. Besides articles about the representation of specific events or broader concepts of history in board games you will find small essays on history, strategy tips for games, thoughts on game design and the occasional event-related (fairs, conventions) post. While the blog does not limit itself to specific periods of history, my M.A. thesis in history (as well as many as my undergraduate and graduate classes and research papers) has been about the Cold War, so this era will come up more often than others.
