Dude, you are only about an hour and a half from where I am! If it weren't for the plague I would be crashing your party right now.  8)
We're drinking sangria right now in an Italian place in town. Throw on a mask and head on over!

I actually don't really like games.

He's probably well into a refreshment and shouldn't be driving.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Which isn't a bad state to be in. Also why I'm pleased with the lovely bus system here.

I LOVED Williamsburg Panzerde. Except for all the walking we did there. Also they have damned fine Chicken Wings in the restaurant there, called Gunpowder Wings I believe. Also loved Jamestown and Yorktown too, great places to visit.  :bigthumb:

Speaking of Horse & Musket IV, has anyone heard anything about the release date? It was originally slated for June but that didn't happen. I really, really want to send Hollandspiele some of my hard earned money.  8)

It's either going to be just before or just after CSW Expo (though there may be some copies at the CSW Expo for sale even if the general release date comes after). Just got the proof copies of the new editions of all five games yesterday. New counters, new rulebooks, new player aids -- it's been a tremendous amount of work and it's gonna be nice finally getting it out there. And I'm in love with the new two-inch box for the new edition of the base game.

Sounds great. I played H&M (just the PnP version)  a lot, so this will be very welcome.

 Sean Chick fan,  Have all of his "hold the Line" games and some earlier versions like Clash for a Continent designed  by Matt Burchfield, Grant Wylie, Mike Wylie.  Bought all the original Horse and Musket series and recently purchased all the upgrade materials  and a second copy of the original game to get a second map tile set and  a second upgrade map.  I am playing through all the scenarios from the first box and concurrently the IV edition scenarios.  I have noticed some of the games are historical replays and are certainly lopsided with one side having little or no chance of winning.  It's a great series with optional rules that enhance the game.
