Nov 21 2001

It’s almost Thanksgiving. I’ll bake an apple pie tonight as my parents do the rest of the work.

Meanwhile, I stumbled upon a wonderful little humorous essay called “Little Wars” by H.G. Wells, about how he and several friends became obssessed with playing wargames with tin soldiers. Contrary to Wells’ dark SF writing, this plays with convention and presents his play with tin soldiers as though it were a proper scientific study.

And within it, he sets out an elegant system for a computer wargame. I’ve written up the rules, and would love to write a game like for AtheOS. Unfortunately, I’ve already got three AtheOS projects at the moment. Adding a fourth is probably a bad idea.
