Hi folks..
      No one has mentioned miniature games. I remember at least two..
"pony
wars" in which the players are the US cavalry and are assaioled by what
i
remember as millions of random and programmed redskins...  I also
remember a
set called "drums along the watusI" written by Richard Brookes.. Same
system
in Africa...
