War Games (disambiguation)for other, similarly-named pages.
The War Game was a "game" created by the War Lords on a planet built to resemble Earth. The War Lords took humans, mostly soldiers, from many different wars and military conflicts from throughout Earth's history. The game was divided into eleven zones, each representing a different conflict. The War Lords didn't capture any humans after Earth year 1917; they judged too great technical knowledge could be dangerous. The plan of the game was to gather the best soldiers to create an army big enough to conquer the galaxy.
Zones in the War Game included the Greek zone, the Roman Zone, the Thirty Years' War zone, the English Civil War zone, the Peninsular War zone, the American Civil War zone, the Mexican Civil War zone, the Crimean War zone, the Boer War zone, the Russo-Japanese War zone and the 1917 zone, referring to the World War I conflict.
People taken to the War Game included Roman soldiers, a redcoat, Ivan Petrov, Sgt Thompson, Corporal Riley, Leroy, Harper, Arturo Villar, Russell, Lt Jeremy Carstairs, Major Barrington, Sgt Willis, Captain Ransom, Sgt Major Burns, Commandant Gorton, Lt Crane, Du Pont, Lt Lucke, Lady Jennifer Buckingham, Spencer and Moor.
