  • Pritzker Military Museum & Library, Chicago

Reserve your place today in the gaming experience you won’t find anywhere else. Play one of six featured historical wargames, plus chess and Go.

Strategy games stress decision making choices. Players learn the impact technology has on tactics and get hands-on experience in making decisions constrained by time, terrain, weather, logistics, the enemy situation, and the limits of command and control. No need to feel intimidated if you have never played. We will provide access to rules and offer game tips.

Game Descriptions

In Their Quiet Fields II: Antietam and Glory III: Antietam are two-player operational brigade-level war games featuring scenarios covering the first eight hours of the Civil War battle fought near Sharpsburg, MD, September 17,1862 which determined the fate of Lee’s first invasion of the North.

Arnhem: Defiant Stand and Arnhem: Grabner’s Charge are two-player tactical-level war games which feature scenarios covering day two of OPERATION MARKET GARDEN, September 18, 1944. Elements of the British 1st Airborne Division defend a perimeter at the north end of Arnhem’s main highway bridge over the Lower Rhine River from assaults by elements of two German Waffen SS armored divisions. The Germans intended to crush the British so reinforcements could be sent south to German forces fighting the U.S. 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions.

Inchon: MacArthur’s Gambit is a two-player operational-level game featuring the 1st Marine Division and U.S. Army’s 7th Infantry Division’s daring assault landing at Inchon, west of Seoul, South Korea, that stormed ashore September 15,1950 with supporting fires from the U.S. Navy and assisted by Republic of Korea marines. The United Nations forces’ daring amphibious assault intended to quickly liberate Seoul which was a key North Korean logistics and communications hub.

Silent Victory: U.S. Submarines in the Pacific, 1941-1945 is a solitaire tactical war game in which the player commands a U.S. submarine conducting patrols against Japanese merchant shipping and warships during World War II. The narrative-rich story which evolves is filled with tense action.

Reservations are required. Free.
