Happy Third Birthday, GrogHeads

We’re finally out of our terrible twos.

Three years ago, a bunch of knuckleheads were unhappy with the current state of their wargaming community, and they were just crazy (or stupid) enough to not know exactly what they were getting themselves into when one of them said “screw it – let’s just start our own site.”

GHlogo1cropOur forums opened for business three years ago today.  It took us a little longer to get organized enough to launch our front page – remember, we had no idea what we were getting into.  But we learned, we adapted, and we’ve grown.

And all of that is 100% attributed to our members, readers, and fans.  You guys have made this place what it is, and are what keeps it going every day.  It’s amazing to log in every day and see a wargaming community that shares a love of a hobby, and so many other common interests – music, movies, sports, technology, and more.

I can’t think of a better real-world summation of this place than what we saw last summer at Origins, when a group of Grogs showed up to help us run the GrogHeads Central Command, and despite none of them having met face-to-face, were clearly old friends who fell right into swapping tall tales at the bar between wargaming events and exhibit hall shenanigans.  And they’re all volunteering to come back and do it again this year.

GrogHeads is a success because of you, and we want to take the moment to pause on the journey to world domination to just simply say “thank you”.  You guys rock.
