The Wargamer was founded in September 1995 as a platform for organising computer or table-top wargames between like-minded individuals. Since then, under the domain name Wargamer.com, the site has expanded its content to cover a wide area of computer wargaming – both strategic and tactical – along with board wargames, miniature wargames, historical articles, book reviews, and more. As the industry has evolved, so has Wargamer.com, and we endeavour to cover wargaming in all its forms.
We have been recognized as the leading web site for the coverage of war and strategy gaming by numerous international PC gaming magazines and publications. In addition, Wargamer.com has received nearly two-dozen accolades and awards for content and design excellence from such organizations as Encyclopedia Britannica, Microsoft France, PCGamer, Computer Gaming World, and PC Magazine.
