These are images from Stockholms army museums exhibition of wargames. The homepage is here; http://www.armemuseum.se/languages/english/.

Unfortunately the exhibition site is in swedish only but can be found here: http://www.armemuseum.se/utstallningar/krigsspel/

My pics from the exhibit: http://www.dartagnan.us/Stockholm-War-Game-Exhibit/

The T-shirt I got was too small. Looking for an XL if anyone would like to pick one up there. They don't respond to email.

This has to be a must for any wargamers visiting Stockholm. Free admission and the website has its own translation in several European languages. I wonder if this is the first of its kind?

Seems spot on to me : "To many players, it is the battle of minds that is most important ; to use the strategies and game pieces to defeat the adversary. To others, the drama itself is the most interesting feature; to become immersed in an exciting course of events, with an outcome that is never decided beforehand"
