I'm Impressed By How Much This Tabletop Game Looks Like Video Game War

I haven't played a tabletop game since my near-obsession with Warhammer back in my college days.

But this weekend I decided to take the plunge again, this time with my 10-year-old son. We settled on World War II-era Flames of War.

While doing some research on the game I came across quite a few images from battles that looked an awful lot like screenshots from some of the video games I like to play. Here are a few of my favorites.
