    When I started Dom, I had a rectangle of green silk with a few brown and yellow dyed patches across it plus the cards and the box with four minis in it. Went all over Europe and to the States with me as my travelling set. It is incredible how small you can get silk to pack!

    Great!

    Unfortunately I see the Thur-Fri-Sat games are still all an hour early and the Sunday games are listed as 3 hours where they should be 2.
    We'll make it work as the games must go on!

    After hours non-ARES games, not on the official schedule are, Wed night Mike Jacobe will run a miniature version of Circus Maximus. He has 3d printed a Hippodrome for this!
    Fri night Chris will run a Feed the Kracken game.
    Sat night I will run my Titanic game.

    And of course Thur night we will head over to the Haufbrau Haus.

    Origins is almost upon us! Can't wait for Wednesday to start. I can do without driving Monday and Tuesday to get there but it is well worth it in the end.

    We will have a mass influx of the online Thursday Night gaming group on Tabletop Flights. There should be 9 of us plus one import from Germany.

    Tim (Flying Helmut) will return along with a lot of the usual Origins pilots. It will be a very good time.

    Sorry I didn't see this Phil till now. Origins messed up our schedule and I couldn't fix it. For Sunday they made our game 3 hours instead of 2 so they looked like they overlap. For future reference we don't turn anyone away, especially our friends.
