In 1281, Kublai Khan (son of Genghis Khan) launched a Mongol naval attack on Japan, only to have his ships—and hopes of conquest—dashed by massive typhoons. Campers enjoy using miniature soldiers, wargames, and film to learn about the invasion. A detailed representation of an attacking Mongol fleet and Samurai defenders offers them insights into the battle and stimulates ideas for building their own dioramas. Campers receive 1/72-scale plastic soldiers that they can trade with one another and paint, then make a terrain board for display or wargaming with their soldiers.
