Greeting from Texas!
« on: April 02, 2018, 06:37:46 PM »
Getting back into after years of being away.  Started off with Target for Today - taking the ole B-17 up for a campaign this week. 

I enjoy reading the submissions from the group as well as the reviews from my old classmate that got me into board gaming - Michael Eckenfels.

I'm amazed at how many great options for gaming that are out there these days.

Any friend of Mike Eckenfels has my sympathy.

Yeah, this guy and I and a few other friends were in JROTC in high school together. We wasted a lot of time playing Axis & Allies and Twilight: 2000 back in the day if I remember right.

Welcome, BigTex.

I'd ask you to draw me like one of your French girls, Stags, but I'm afraid it would be a drawing of a cross-dressing Quebecois truck driver.

Where'd you get that picture?!?!?!?!?

You're lucky I don't use my Mod PowersTM to strike thee down...

But what worries me is how Barth is so fast on the draw with a pic of a cross-dresser in the cab of a truck...are all Canadians equally prepared for such eventualities? ;)
