EPGS

Well, the EPGS seemed to have a good time today. We had seven of their players spend a day with us. Several wargames were going on downstairs while a game of Le Havre played upstairs. We ended the day with a few more board games. I'd save overall, it was a good day for everyone involved.

Learn L5R day

On May 8, you have the chance to learn the Legends of the Five Rings CCG with some of our best players. We will be teaching the game and building you a custom deck. Details are in the works. If you want to find out which clan is recommended for you, take a moment to to take a quiz.
