A blog to discuss my many wargaming projects.
How many, you ask?
And I'm adding more
all the time.

Frostgrave for Kids
This past Friday I got the chance to help out at the local game store with a game of Frostgrave being run for home-schooled children. As part of a program to give these kids a chance to interact and socialize, a local fellow, Andrew, runs games for them every couple weeks at the store. I, and another one of the HAWKs, Don, were invited to help out with this one, and it was a lot of fun.
The kids getting their rules briefing.
We played with reduced warbands consisting of just a wizard and four soldiers that we three GM's had put together earlier; and each player only placed 2 treasures. The kids were able to pick up the rules fairly quickly and had a great time.
In the thick of the fight.
It was a fun time for us GMs too, and the kids enjoyed it so much that we are going to be doing it again in a couple weeks.
