I am very pleased to announce that I have signed on as a regular contributor to Play the Past, a new group blog on meaningful play and cultural heritage. For me, Play the Past represents an opportunity to continue to develop the explorations I began in my now dormant Zone of Influence blog on tabletop historical gaming. Only here I get to do it in the company of some truly fabulous collaborators. My beat on Play the Past will consist primarily of tabletop wargames, or conflict simulations as they are sometimes known. My first post, “Conflicting the Past,” explains why all of this interests me.
