Sorting through some ancient videotapes, destined for disposal, I found, along with the kids’ “Postman Pat” and”My Little Pony,” a long forgotten and damaged tape. In my own barely legible hand it reads….
“A Game of War” 1997
- Naseby. 2 …”
That’s it! The recording, undoubtedly made at home over 20 years ago, can’t be played again, so it’s down to memory. I think that this was a group of wargamers playing out the English Civil War battle with 25mm figures, but can’t recall who the others were. It must have been a series of battles, and for some reason Waterloo and Agincourt come to mind, but little else.
Does anyone else remember this series? Can anyone fill in a gap or two? It must have been one of the last wargame representations shown on TV, not that there were ever that many.
