About Me
As a first step i teach at the marine Corps War College and want to add simulations to the classroom instruction. I am hoping to find someone patient enough to show me the ins-and-outs of the above games so that I can integrate them into the classroom...

After that I am looking for a group that might enjoy getting together on a semi-regular basis for some fun gaming (I would hope you are the type that would not mind having a football game on in the background.)
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I work a lot -- teaching and writing.

Spare time right now is spent reading.... and a movie as often as a good one comes to the local theaters.

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mr.frankkwabena20@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Frank.

Hi Jim, Would enjoy chatting by email or phone to see if we might find a game for face to face play. I live in Vienna, am, single, retired (74). 703-242-8840 or johnloth@verizon.net. I live alone so can easily leave a game set up as needed. 

John
