User Profile for Filippo Chiari
Hello, Ciao, Tschüs, Salut, こんにちは, Γεια σας, привет, مرحبا , 你好 BGGeekers!
Welcome in my page on BGG!
I'm a veteran wargamer.
I love History, from ancient to contemporary, so the step towards wargames was obvious and necessary because my curiosity versus military events, technologies, strategies has grown proportionally with the hundreds of books I've read.
My first wargame was a Napoleonic taken from VaeVictis, explained in 20 minutes and played in 30 ... then the adventure had its start.
I like all wargames generally speaking, but my heart beats for wargames concerning these historical periods:
- Ancient Greek and Roman
- Medieval Japan
- Seven Years War
- Napoleonic's War
- American Civil War
- Zulu War
- Italian Indipendence War
- Korean War
- Vietnam War
- War of the Ring ... oops!
I've some wargame's series on the first line:
- La Bataille
- RSS & LoB
I try to play as much as possible and when opportunities are lacking, I seek to create some new ... by my home, joining with local conventions, inviting new wargamers by existing Groups/Clubs, writing threads on several sites.
So if you are interested send me a geekmail, we can chat on skype (my english permitting ...) or meet if you come to Italy or already live there ... my home is 35 km (22 miles) from Milano.
Bye and Good wargames!

It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it.
