Cincinnati Library Game Day

Today the three older girls and I attended a Game Day at the downtown branch of the Cincinnati Library. The crowd was a little small in size but very enthusiastic. Thanks to LeeAnn McNabb for setting up this well-run event. I had to give my "Intro to Eurogames" talk to a group comprised mostly of diehard gamers, but they were very gracious. Here are some pictures:

 You don't often get such a great view from a library!

Games to Troops

My brother-in-law has just arrived in Afghanistan for another deployment. Before he went he asked me about sending some games for troops with significant downtime to fill. So, I've been asking around. So far, I have three publishers (Tasty Minstrel Games, Steve Jackson Games and Minion Games) on board. I asked them first because I know them. However, if you are a publisher and would like to be involved, please let me know, and I'll send you his APO address. If you are an individual with a few games to spare, you can participate as well. This would be a great encouragement to the 30,000+ troops of Bagram Air Force Base and a great way to thank them for their sacrifice! Thanks!
