DM #1 remembered

Wired has a lengthy rememberance of Dungeons & Dragons creator Gary Gygax here.

Certain to cause Spouse’s eyes to jump out of her head and a significant amount of associated sputtering is the following passage from the article:

Many trace the origin of war games to a 1913 work by H. G. Wells titled Little Wars: A Game for Boys of Twelve Years of Age to One Hundred and Fifty and for that More Intelligent Sort of Girl Who Likes Boys’ Games and Books.

H.G. Wells is SO not getting a Christmas card from us this year.
