In the beginning, there were the Test Series Games.

The Test Series Games were the original efforts by the formative band of would-be designers that came together around S&T magazine in the early days. Poultron Press was organized to improve the games offered to wargamers, and break the 'one game a year' stranglehold AH exerted on the hobby. Poultron Press first advertised in S&T 18 - click the link below to see an ad from S&T 20. 

The response was overwhelming.

The rules were not typeset. The maps were black & white, on very thin paper. Counters were essentially printed on construction paper, unmounted. And yet - they sold hundreds. Check out all the great pictures at the bottom of the page.

By the way
-  Poutron is the French word for 'lunatic.'
