Figure Gaming is a form of wargaming which incorporates miniature figures, representative terrain, probability, and the negation of luck as the main components. The use of wargaming was used as far back as far as 3 000 BC to train the princes of Ancient Egypt, was first codified as a game in the 19th century in Prussia.

Both in Prussia and Russia, the Kaiser and Tsar would preside over games played by their senior officers, and in England, the foreword of the "Conduct of the War Game" state that the Prince of Wales expected that every senior officer would "avail themselves of these rules".
