- Floor Games
"Floor Games" was written by science fiction author
H. G. Wellsin 1911 and is a lighthearted, sometimes humorous discussion about the theory, purpose, and methodology of playing a variety of children's games with models, miniatures, and other props.
"Floor Games" is often characterized as a "companion book" to Wells' "
Little Wars" (1913), though as the text of the earlier book makes clear, it was conceived of as a self-standing volume that the author might eventually decide to follow with a text devoted purely to wargames.
Numerous reprints of "Floor Games" have been published in the century since its initial release. The most recent edition of the book was published by
Skirmisher Publishing LLCin 2006 and includes a foreword by game design giant James F. Dunniganan introduction by game designer and author Michael J. Varhola.
