The following article is an attempt at conceptualization of using wargaming as a proxy laboratory. This paper investigates the potential of wargaming as an experimental study by presenting the review of scientific wargaming and its predecessors from the discipline. Based on the literature review, multiple categories of wargames can be recognized with its own perspective on common parameters in specific scenarios. The review led to a preliminary taxonomy which can be derived from the categories paired with parametrization.
