A place where heroes and villains bring the universe to life, spawning a host of games, novels, toys and more." http://battletech.catalystgamelabs.com/

Fanelli returns

The Battle of Bushy Run took place August 5-6, 1763 in western Pennsylvania, between Pontiac's Indian confederation and a force composed of Highlanders and the 60th Royal American Regiment. On Saturday the 23rd, Bob Fanelli will be running his famous home-brewed miniature game system so you can fight this battle. He can handle up to 10 players, spaces will be given to people that reserve a space in advance, then first come, first served.
