Kriegsspiel 1824

Published in 1824, and written by a Prussian Army officer who had served in the Napoleonic Wars, Kriegsspiel is the genesis of modern wargaming. This was the set of wargames rules used by von Moltke, that inspired von Schlieffen, that led to the birth of wargaming as both a military tool and a hobby.

Now, in association with Bill Leeson, TooFatLardies bring you the original 1824 rule set so that today's gamers can experience the ultimate wargaming system for themselves. With the rules presented in PDF format in full colour and additional material provided on period tactics, and the 1828 Berlin Wargames Society Amendments. This rule set is absolutely packed with material for the gamer and historian alike and has a multitude of applications across many periods of history. 76 A4 pages in total.
