Yes, it is. Free Kriegsspiel Renaissance.Emphasis mine.
I think FKR is a reference to Free Kriegspiel (sp?),
A game where the referee runs the rules and the players play their characters. The player tells the referee what they want to do, the referee crunches the numbers, maybe even rolls for the player, and tells the player the result. The player does not interact with the game system directly. Think of the ultimate beginner game. "Don't worry about the sheet or the book, just tell me what you want to do and I'll tell you what happens."but what is a "black box game"?
