A History of Wargaming (via RW)
From the Napoleonic era to the computer age: "In 1953 a young man named Charles Roberts started selling a map wargame he designed called "Tactics" to civilians. By 1958 he had sold 2000 copies and had come within $30 of breaking even. Encouraged, he founded the Avalon Hill Game Company to sell war, economic and sports simulation games to the general public."
