War returned to Fort Meigs last weekend... on a miniature scale, at least.
The annual Drums at the Rapids Miniature War Gaming Conference returned to the fort for two days of dice-rolling and tactical competition May 17 and 18.
Hosted by the Great Lakes Chapter of the Historical Miniature Gaming Society, the event included nearly 45 different gaming sessions ranging from the simple to the complex, featuring time periods from the age of the Roman Empire to World War II, and beyond.
Among the games played during the weekend were the pirate adventure "Pieces of Eight," the War of 1812-themed scenarios "Relief of Fort Meigs," and "Invasion of Canada," a Spanish Civil War simulation, and even "Star Trek: A Call to Arms."
Many of the games featured elaborately constructed terrain and hand-painted miniatures.
