UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS/NEWS

NOVAG/PW Game Day Game Day went very well this year.  All nine games were filled and played.  Thanks to all the GMs who put on games.   There were a number of new and younger faces.  The big hit was the Panzer Kids game.  It was very well attended and had a scrum of younger players. The Siege game likewise attracted some younger games as well. Walt O’Hara live posted the Napoleonic Fantasy game to Facebook as well.

Lost figures. Roy Jones ran a game at Game Day.  He reports he is missing eight 25mm Schutztruppen figures. Anyone happen to pick these up by mistake?  If so, please contact Roy at roy.s.jones.jr@leidos.com.
