Culture Repackaged: An Ethnography of the Globalized Sub-Culture of Tabletop Wargamers

Rainier Lee

Abstract


The purpose of this research is to show the changing face of cultural participation in hidden sub-cultures of the West.  Through repackaging social partnership to adapt to post-modern realities, Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Gamers establish community, identity, and social mobilization through tabletop wargaming. This research is a call for anthropologists to expand their presence on social media as a means of understanding shifting images of culture. It is also a call for Christian participation in all segments of society.
