Must Read Article

All strategy and wargamers should read Greg Costikyan's contribution to this week's Escapist. It's a great little summary of the evolution of board and paper games, including strategy and wargames. I don't as eagerly endorse the conclusions he draws for the computer gaming industry, but his account of the history of gaming is full of juicy nuggets.

Like, did you know that wargamers were the first to use the term "gamers" as reference to their community? I didn't.

Thanks for the pointer to the article - certainly interesting. Must try to make time to read the Escapist more often.
