This February's theme is "Epic Sieges" - February 2013 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the Battle of Stalingrad as well as the end of the Guadalcanal Campaign. Candidate games include: "Storm over Stalingrad", "The Hell of Stalingrad", "Turning Point Stalingrad", "Combat Commander: Battlepack 2: Stalingrad", "Guadalcanal", "Operation Shoestring", "PanzerGrenadier: Semper Fi!", "The Siege of Jerusalem", "The Siege of Alesia", "Stronghold", "Verdun: A Generation Lost", "They Shall Not Pass: The Battle of Verdun 1916", "Malta Besieged:[masked]", "Storm over Dien Bien Phu", etc..
You need not play a game related to the theme; the idea behind the theme is to get people to play games or explore eras or systems that they might not otherwise.
Remember to pre-arrange your games and opponents on our message board in this thread:
Newcomers are always welcome. You don't need to bring a game if you don't have one; other members usually bring far more than are necessary.
We will be playing in the upper parlours of Forest Hill United Church, located at 2 Wembley Road, just north of Eglinton on Bathurst Street. Look for paper signs posted on the doors to guide you to the room. When you approach from the parking lot, go to the doors on your left, not the main doors into the sanctuary.
Some parking is available in the streets nearby the church and you may also park in the lot if there are spaces available - many spaces clear up right around 11 AM.
To get to the church by TTC, take the #32 bus east (if coming from Eglinton West station on the University line) or the same bus going west (if coming from Eglinton station on the Yonge line). Both buses run frequently. Get off at Bathurst and walk one (short) block north on the west side of Bathurst. There is no admission fee, but a small donation to the church's property committee is appreciated.
