This week

Recently, I've had a number of people ask about playing D&D or other RPGs in the store. However, no one has asked about running an RPG! If you'd care to run a campaign, or a few scenarios, I'd love to hear from you. Privateer Press (makers of Monsterpocalypse) are releasing a Voltron miniature game in July. If you are interested, let me know so that I can pre-order enough copies. Speaking of Pre-orders, Mayfair Games are releasing Mystery Express. Murder aboard the Orient Express is the background for this game that is much more complex than Clue.
