I'm guessing this one won't be in the new Miskatonic expansion...

I think that "Wargames" capacity is too powerfull. Maybe Lore check (-2) ?

Eh, I don't know... You are delayed when you do that, and there's no guarantee of getting anything. Even if your Lore is 6, you would roll 5 dice and might get none. Of course, you might get extremely lucky and get all 5, but I would think even when rolling 5 dice you'd be getting 1 or 2 most of the time. And for the average investigator who doesn't have 6 Lore, I'd want to make the possibility of trying this at least somewhat appealing.

Perhaps one way to balance that would be to make it so you make either a Lore (-1) check or a Fight (-1) check, whichever skill is currently lower. Without some serious skills or Allies added, no character is going to have both a 6 Lore and a 6 Fight.
