JIGG, Japan`s International Gamers Guild – On Wargames
“Alexander the Great. Napoleon Bonaparte. George Patton. Men whose military genius shaped the world around them.
War games let you re-create and out-do the epic accomplishments of these great men by putting you in charge of the grand strategies and sharp tactics that decide the fate of men and nations.
War games also encompass non-historical settings, such as futuristic science-fiction conflicts and fanstasy battles between men and monster.
Whether you are a student of history looking to examine a particular era, or a casual gamer looking to enjoy a new gaming experience…”–(Fun Again Games Store Site), wargames allow you to explore history.
