What’s with the name of the shop?

Little Wars is named in honor of Herbert George Wells, the English novelist, essayist and social critic best known for his turn-of-the-century science fiction novels The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, War of the Worlds, and The First Men in the Moon.

Writing in the glory days of a British empire established as much by muskets as by machines, H.G. Wells intended Little Wars: A Game for Boys, From Twelve Years of Age to One Hundred and Fifty and For That More Intelligent Sort of Girls Who Like Boy’s Games and Books to serve as a simple rules system of enjoyable war-gaming for non-professional soldiers. With terrain a mere jumble of books and blocks borrowed from the library and nursery room, he laid out battlefields on lawns and living rooms where middle-aged Napoleons fired breech-loading toy cannons at armies of brightly painted Britains tin soldiers.


  • This place has been my FLGS (friendly local game shop) since I was but a wee lad, now they have new owners who clearly care about their business and their customers, magnificent hobby shop for all your hobby needs!

    Great place to bully the other nerds. Only kidding, not okay to even joke about that. Nice business and they don’t get mad at me for spending an hour trying to decide what to get before ultimately chickening out and going home empty handed. So who is the real coward? I am

    This place is very unique, contained many different styles in tabletop games. I was surprised to see very detailed miniatures that could be painted by collectors and game enthusiasts. Very novel style atmosphere with small group tables available for casual games with friends.

    I've been to a few other Nerd Bases, yet this one has been the absolute best. The staff go out of their way to help you feel right where you belong. It's hard for my wife to make friends, however, since we've come here she and I simply can NOT stop wanting to go back. We made quite a few friends, receive endless advice and tips on deck building, miniature painting, and DnD campaigns. Definitely recommend this shop.

  • Just a great place to find Trading cards, board games, and table top games. Also just a good place to hang out. The staff their is always friendly and willing to help. I love that they are all geeks and love to chat with you about your latest D&D session or whatever else you want to geek out on. Also if they don't have something they are usually willing to special order it. Just can't get better service anywhere in Baton Rouge. I've been going here since I was a kid and although it's changed owners a couple times, the atmosphere of the store has stayed the same and kept me a loyal customer for over 15 years
