Wooden warships ... and fun wargames!

One of the blogs that I follow is Foss1066's Skull and Crown. This features all sorts of wargames that use laser-cut wooden figures ... and wooden warships.


The most recent blog entry describes a naval battle fought at the South Bay Game Club. The two sides fielded a range of warships, including an aircraft carrier (and aircraft) apiece.

Judging by the write-up this was a wargame that was enjoyed by young and old alike, and struck me as being akin to the sort of naval wargame that H G Wells might have developed, had he ever got around to doing so.
