Later in the week, I catch Ruhnke walking around the wargaming room. He moves from table to table slowly with seeming purpose, but he offers no commentary. Then he stops, crosses his arms, and looks at the tournament playing out in front of us. The game is Waterloo, first released in 1962.

“It’s great to hit preorder numbers, sell games, know there’s buzz,” he says. “But if someone were still playing my games 40 or 50 years from now? Even if it were only a couple people? That’s lasting. I work in intelligence. There’s not a lot that lasts in intelligence. All I want is to see people playing. That’s immortality.”
