10 Wargame Misconceptions Infographic

Misconceptions about wargaming are rampant, often deterring newcomers and skewing perceptions of this engaging hobby. One common myth is that most tabletop miniatures wargaming occurs in stores and tournaments. In reality, most games occur at home, where friends gather for relaxed and strategic fun. Another misconception is that you must keep up with every new rule and version to stay relevant. However, wargaming is flexible, allowing players to stick with preferred versions and adjust rules as they see fit. Despite the intense and creative process of painting miniatures and setting up battles, wargaming is sometimes seen as less popular than card and board games but boasts a passionate community. Contrary to the belief that wargamers prefer to be alone, many enjoy the social aspect of sharing stories and strategies. While some view wargaming as a tool for predicting future conflicts, it is more about exploring possibilities than making exact predictions. Additionally, wargaming is not just for history buffs; it attracts those who love strategy, creativity, and competition. The idea that more complicated wargames are better is also false. Simpler games can be just as enjoyable, especially for beginners. Finding opponents might seem challenging, but introducing friends and family to wargaming can create new gaming partners. The notion that you must paint miniatures daily to be a true hobbyist is untrue. Painting is a skill that develops at your own pace, and the hobby is about fun, not pressure. Lastly, while big companies produce many popular games, smaller publishers offer quality games with fresh ideas and unique experiences.
