Welcome to the Gaming Research and Resources page. This group aims to provide high quality gaming and historical resources based on high quality historical research by experts in the subject. Initially these will be mainly on gaming subjects but on a variety of subjects over time.

The focus will be on difficult, hard to find periods and subjects with the initial material focusing on the Great Northern War (1700 - 1721) and the War of the Spanish Succession (1701 - 1714).
