Before the advent of the 286/386 PC computer that allowed a revolution in war gaming in the 1990s, there were (and still are) a number of very interesting and very addictive military strategy games. Some were board games, such as the popular Axis & Allies, by Avalon Hill. And others were computer games, such as those by Strategic Simulations, Inc. (SSI), designed for systems such as the Amiga, Commodore 64/128 and the Apple IIe/IIc computers. (The owner of MilitarySpot.com fondly remembers playing SSI's Battle of the Bulge: Tigers in the Snow on his Apple IIe.) And of course, there were the popular board games such as Stratego, Battleship, Risk, and Tank Battle!
