- Metagaming Concepts launched the first line of microgames, and coined the term itself, when they released Ogre, MicroGame #1 in 1977.
- The first MicroGames were approximately 4x7" and came in a plastic bag. Many of the later games came in notoriously flimsy small cardboard boxes.
- Metagaming released twenty-two games in their MicroGame line.

- Ice War, second edition rulebook, 1978
- The second edition Ice War rulebook is a bit of a surprise. In 1998 a number of these plain cover rulebooks were found in a game store. This style of rulebook is the same as is found in boxed MicroGames, indicating that a boxed edition of Ice War was planned. However, to date I have been unable to locate any boxed editions of Ice War.
