A couple of months ago, I was approached by Greg Burns, a librarian with the Harris County Library System. He wants to set up a display with wargame miniatures in the Seabrook branch of the library during the months of November and December. The library has a locking display case that measures 57" H x 134" W x 17" D. The idea is to set up a display called "From History to Hobby" and showcase miniatures and books that compliment them.

That's right, all you wargamers and beer aficionados out there, its our third annual year-in-review. We've recently celebrated the third anniversary of what Rob first conceived of three years ago, back when we started meeting occasionally in Asgard's back room, to drink beer and play a multiplayer, simple, fast, and fun wargame, and have a good laugh or three while doing it.
