I just wish that someone had mentioned this a while back so I could make plans.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I'm looking to play IT NEVER SNOWS by MMP in the Board Room.

I can use two German players, North and South, and four Allied players, 1st AB, 82nd AB, and 101st AB, and the 30 Corps.

I'm hoping to get it started on Thursday morning.

Somehow I have a feeling the only games I'll get to play this summer are the ones I'm working! :-\

So here's what one of the staff wargaming exercises looks like during part of the exercise




What else can we tell you about the new GrogHeads Central Command at Origins?

We don't control the crews being brought along by the other companies for their booths.  But you've met a lot of wargamers in your time - you tell me what you think they are.

Now, if Wargaming.net comes, they might bring some of the GuP team with them to help (wo)man their setup...

Looks like Wargaming.net is going to be there too - even more reasons to come to Origins!
