In 1913, H.G. Wells wrote Little Wars, a book with a set of rules for a toy soldiers game. It is similar to Kriegsspiel. I have a question about the rules of it. Are questions about this game on-topic here? I checked the FAQ and this is what it said:
- Be playable on or around a table
- Have objective rules of play and win conditions
- Offer dynamic challenges, either through other players, randomization, or both
- Be playable by hand, by human players implementing all of the rules
However, it is not played on a board, par se (see page 39). It is normally played in an area sometimes up to 18 feet wide. I normally play on a 8 foot wide (custom-made) table. Does this constitute a board game playable on a table, or is it off-topic here. The game fulfills every other requirement, but this one seemed stretching it. Are questions about Little Wars on-topic here?
