At Armchair Dragoons’ Fall Assembly,
Wargame enthusiasts gather, hurray!
With dice and with maps,
They’ll reenact some grand scraps,
In strategy games, they’ll spend the whole day!
From ancient battles to conflicts anew,
They’ll strategize, plan, and review.
With miniatures and boards,
They’ll command mighty hordes,
In the wargaming world, they’ll pursue!
