What is a wargame?
Maybe I should ask: what is a wargamer? Well if you go on gaming forums, you will see there are as many variations as ways to do this hobby. I can here, mostly speak for myself. Basically we are playing war, or rather playing with war which is way different or even playing with toys that look like their counterparts in history (or counters on board-games). It is mostly related to military history (though too many wargamers actually play non historical subjects, AKA fantasy and sci-fi duh). Most wargamers are not warriors, warmongers or even military, some are of course. It is related to war as watching Hannibal (Lecter, not the one with elephants) or The Shield makes you a serial killer or a proponent of crooked law enforcement and criminal behaviour.
Our wars are harmless and our warriors once finished with, go into a box; we can restart, change “history” (lot like politicians, our changes do not go in schoolbooks). When we lost Austerlitz we can say ”lets do it again next week end”. Those of us who care, read and study might know far more than many, especially journalists 😉.
