Hi guys. I saw posted here a couple of months ago a few pictures of a wargame from (I want to say) the 15-1700's. It was a gift to the king of either Bavaria or Prussia (can't remember which) and had numerous square tiles which made up the board which sat atop a large wooden cabinet. I'm dying to see the pictures again, but can't remember how to find it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've always wondered what it actually looked like.

Basically, history's first wargaming geek. The guy had a "monster wargame" as big as a ping-pong table from the size of it, with geomorphic maps to boot, indulged in weekend (or longer) gaming sessions. Kind of what I remember doing with friends and Avalon Hill games in the 80s.

Thanks for posting the picture.
