As interpreted by our circle, Kriegsspiel is any fun conflict simulation using umpires to limit the information available to the combatants, thus providing for example hidden movement and the 'fog of war' in a military simulation.
Kriegsspiel was invented by the Prussian army at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as a grand tactical simulation, and the subject matter of the games is still usually (though not exclusively) military or naval activity. The scale of the game can however vary very widely - we have played maps varying from a small region in Alsace to the whole of the Indian Ocean.
More information on the game and its many variants can be found in the guestbook
