Little Wars and Floor Games
Little Wars (A Game for Boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books) With an Appendix on Kriegspiel By H. G. Wells - Little Wars was written by the famous author H. G. Wells in 1913 and is a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers. Its full title is Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books. FLOOR GAMES A Father's Account of Play and Its Legacy of Healing by Herbert George Wells. Floor Games was written by science fiction author H. G. Wells in 1911 and is a lighthearted, sometimes humorous discussion about the theory, purpose, and methodology of playing a variety of children's games with models, miniatures, and other props. Floor Games is often somewhat misleadingly characterized as a "companion book" to Well's Little Wars, even though that book was not actually published until 1913, two years after the release of Floor Games. As the text of the earlier book makes clear, however, it was conceived of as a self-standing volume that the author might eventually decide to follow with a text devoted purely to wargames.
