Greetings from Sydney, Australia
« on: June 07, 2018, 06:20:04 AM »
Joining from Sydney, Australia, been board wargaming since about 1976. Little bit of computer gaming, hardly any role playing (but like a boardgame or minis with role playing elements), many kinds of minis, euros. Looking forward to seeing what GrogHeads is all about.

Cheers
Neil
