Introduction

For some time I have been interested in the pre-1700 Spanish, Portuguese, English, and French overseas colonial conflicts. Whether stories of empire-gone-wrong in the Spanish Caribbean, Conquistadors fighting and conning their way to Tenochtitlan, hard-fought Portuguese campaigns in Angola and the Congo, enterprising Elizabethan Sea Dogs and cutthroats on the Spanish Main, or lost colonies in the North American wilderness, they all inspire a certain facination. Living in the US, one cannot help wonder what happened here when much of the place was a wilderness, inhabited only by Indians and but a few European settlers in remote and isolated outposts so far from home. This page will focus upon my attempts to wargame parts of the period, and I hope it might inspire other gamers to try it as well.
