War Games

June 9 to December 31, 2023

From historic board games to modern military simulations, from chess to online multiplayer battles, war games are as ancient, varied and complex as war itself. Explore how gaming has been used to develop tactics and train for real world conflicts, and learn how wars have shaped the games people play at home.

An exhibition developed by the Canadian War Museum.
