If you've never heard of them before, Play the Past is a fascinating web site that is, to use their own words, "dedicated to thoughtfully exploring and discussing the intersection of cultural heritage and games/meaningful play."

Contributing as a guest writer, Jim has written a really interesting essay on how the concept of caricature can be used to implement history in game mechanics using examples from the Hegemony series.

We hope to be doing a few more pieces with them in the coming weeks, so stay tuned and, after you read Jim's piece, check out some of the other articles on their site as they cover some really unique subjects you won't find on other gaming sites.
