Long DescriptionOriginally run by Jeff Perren, Gary Gygax's co-author of Chainmail, at Gen Con IV in 1971! Test your skills in this exciting, live-fire, miniatures game that is the roots of miniature wargaming. Two teams of three players will fight it out in a Little Wars battle between the vaunted Bengal Lancers as they fight Pashtun tribesmen under the command of the Mad Mullah! The game will use antique 4.7 inch, spring loaded, toy Naval guns by W. Britains that fire dowels to knock down toy soldiers. The full title of H.G. Wells' book: "Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books." This book is the first set of commercially published military miniatures rules and is the ancestor of modern miniature wargaming.
