Pleased to meet you
« on: June 30, 2018, 09:06:40 AM »
Long time lurker here, but wanted to say hello.
Been playing stratergy games on the computer since the days of the good old Spectrum 48K.  But in the last few years have started to discover how great boardgames are, mainly through DVG, but am now looking further afield.
Great site full of wargaming goodness and plenty of banter.  I have some questions to ask, and will post in due course.

Hi there Tiamak! Welcome to our little corner of the web.

Ask your questions, I'm sure there is someone here who knows the answer or knows where to get it.

Spectrum 48K? That's only been about 30 years.  :-"

I double dare you to sing it next time you're on a grogcast! Tell you what, we'll do a duet.
