Kriegsspiel on AHIKS Kommandeur 58, Nr. 7, 2023

The oldes and largest board wargaming society, Avalon Hill International Kriegsspiel Society, invited us to write an introduction to Kriegsspiel and the IKS for their magazine, the Kommandeur. The AHIKS is a classic board wargaming society. They provide player matching, organize virtual play, tournaments and a counter replacement service, and provide an online community to connect with players from around the globe. What we do with Kriegsspiel, they do with board wargames.
