Gaming Nostalgia – The Orcs Nest

#TBT at GrogHeads!

When we went travelled to London in the Summer of ’88, there was one required stop: The Orcs Nest.  A Warhammer box set, two Battletech books, and a whole lot of dice later, we were on our way.  Nine months later, a guy in Oklahoma recognized the Orcs Nest pin on my backpack from the Dragon Magazine ads.
