I am highly agitated! Today I received a newsletter from Troll & Toad. In that giant collection they recently bought, they have an original TACTICS game from 1952. Man oh man - this is the game that started it all!

I am writing everyone I can think of about this. This very first published wargame is super-rare. I've never even seen a photograph of the boxtop. I have written Troll & Toad, asking that they provide a photograph of this historically important game to BGG.

I encourage all wargamers to send Troll & Toad a request that they send a photograph of this game to BGG. We may never handle or own such a rare game. But it sure would be great to have a photograph of it in the public record!

I wrote them at sales@trollandtoad.com

Come on boys! Lets make it clear we want a photo of TACTICS!

Mine has a 1958 copyright on the board and a 1961 date on the reference booklet - I wonder what changes if any were made in the various versions and why they were made. I feel a burst of insanely trivial research coming on!

Mission Accomplished! Troll & Toad e-mailed me a photo this morning. I have uploaded it and it may now be viewed by any who are interested.
