This list contains all the games featured in The Complete Book of Wargames by Jon Freeman.

For those of you who don't have the book it will allow you to look at all the games he reviewed.

For those of you who do have the book (like myself) it will allow you to compare Jon's rating to those on BGG.

I have presented the games in the order presented in the book which generally goes from Ancient, Medieval, Pre-Napoleonic, Napoleonic, Dawn of Modern War (Civil War era), World War I, World War II, Modern Era (i.e. the author's modern era circa 1970's which is when the book came out), Science Fiction Games, Fantasy Games.

He also has a Roleplaying section however only those RPG games that were part of BGG original database prior to RPGGeek being created have been included.

For those interested in what RPG games he reviews that are not included in this list, they are Chivalry & Sorcery, Dungeons & Dragons (Basic Set and Advanced), Empire of the Petal Throne, En Garde!, Metamorphosis Alpha, Runequest, Space Patrol and Superhero 2044 and Tunnels and Trolls.

(Note: It took me several days over three months to compile all of this if you enjoy it please like it and of course any Geekgold tips are welcome!)

Comments: This game is a part of SPI's PRESTAGS series. See Chariot for a review of that system. Yeoman is a bit more complex than the others in the system because combat became more complicated with the introduction of gunpowder.
