World War II lives I / f
again in the Union.
By LORI CARRUTHERS
World War II has been fought in the Michigan Union.
This time, however, the battles were without loss of blood and
1 ves. On the upper floors of the Union, in rooms meagerly fur- -. r
nished with wooden tables and uncomfortable chairs, men, women
and children recreate history in the form of simulation games. Be-
sides the bloodless World War II, history lovers and war-buffs
alike return to the past with simulation games including the me-
dieval "Dungeons and Dragons."
THIS WORLD WAR II is a board game. Oin a huge map di-
vided into hexagons equaling a distance of 33 kilometers, tiny
cardboard squares representing men and machinery move about. "
Dungeons and Dragons, is played with figurines, a floor plan
of a dungeon and six-sided and 20-sided dice.
"You've got to be a buff of history or a frustrated Napoleon
or Adolph Hitler to play," gamesman John Finley said of the -
simulation game players. "But the Napoleons and Hitlers are
easief to beat. They take chances -they will fight to the last
man instead of running away."
Finley, a student o military history, is not a frustrated Hitler
but rather, a man of peace. He is reluctant to call himself a
pacifist, however as he is willing to defend himself or another
person physically although he opposes war.
"I WISH in a way that the war had never happened," he said.

"I'd like to see an end to conflict. But man being the animal
he is - I don't mean that in a derogatory way - he has a ten-
dency towards conflict."
