Abstract

Procedural Content Generation has a focus on the development of digital games, this leaves out a number of interesting domains for a generation of wargames and other board game types. These games are based on limited computational resources, using dice for random numbers and creations via tables. This paper presents a historical look at non-digital methods for PCG application and in particular a taxonomy of methods and locations of their use.
