Well I'm jealous. somewhat. I've not yet made it to Europe to do any tours of the battlefields there after all this time I've spent studying and gaming out battles there from WWII. It's a great photo though.
Hi Kaarin! Christin and I had a great time at Prezcon (it was her first gaming convention). Many thanks to you and the rest of the GM/convention staff -- you folks really make that convention tick. We're both looking forward to the Congress this fall!
Definitely had a great time at PrezCon. A couple of highlights were taking 2nd in Here I Stand--the three games I played obsessed me enough that I came home and got into a PBeM version :) I also played in a meat grinder version of Circus Maximus--winning with a chariot team with the swift speed of "5". The dogs of Rome rejoiced with all the carnage!
I believe it's at Altun Ha in Belize. I love to travel--some of our best trips used wargame maps as the basis for the tour. Wandering Market Garden, the Bulge, Maginot Line forts, Marathon and such and playing a related wargame helps me remember more about and understand the geographical and historical context.
Kaarin, thanks for joining us here. I hope we can get a WBC and/or BPA group started here. I will officially announce this site next week sometime. Thanks for all you do to support the hobby! You have many fans here.
