The Society for Creative Anachronism in Berkeley, California has been attributed to founding creative historygames, which involve historical re-enactments.

As a living history group, the California society focused on recreating Medieval European cultural events which occurred prior to the 17th century.

TSR released the first commercially available RPG, Dungeons & Dragons that deviated from traditional war gaming by assigning each player a specific character which embarks on an imaginary adventure in a fantasy setting.

Competitors that tried to cash in on this insanely popular game included Tunnels and Trolls, with other early semi-successes including Traveller, RuneQuest and Chivalry & Sorcery.
