The Best Reason I Know to Give Away a New Wargame

As a high school teacher, one of the things I've never heard (in 31 years) is a 16 y.o. female student describe a wargame as (and I quote) "The most awesome game ever...."  She was talking about Napoleon (the AH version) that she played at game club "pizza and games" night. (see my last blog....)  

How would one react?  Well, I just so happened to have a new copy of the CG version I'd picked up last summer at a store clearnace in Santa Clara (for $5!). So student "K" is now the proud owner of her very first wargame.  I understand that there's a re-match of the last game scheduled for tomorrow night's meeting. She wants "revenge."

Making converts, one at a time. It's all we can do.

Update: Student "K" won the rematch over her male counter-part. 

Another wargamer hooked?  Time will tell.

Hey, Wayne, hope your school year is going well. I've been talked into working one more year, then it's time to retire and do something else. (And play more wargames.)
