A dear friend of mine has recently deployed overseas for the first time with the army. She got the chance to work with the USO to host a game night for the troops and put out the call to her geeky/nerdy friends in the states for games.

CALLING ALL NERDS!

I am going to be working at the USO and I get to help run events. One of things that I think would be awesome is a board game night full of nerdy board games. Well the problem is that we don't have any nerdy board games. So this is where you all come in, if any of you could possibly donate some nerdy board games so I can run this awesome night for other soldiers, I would really appreciate it! All I ask is that it isn't anything vulgar because the USO wants to keep it a friendly atmosphere~ Just holler at my hubby Jon Leonard and he can give you the address! Thank you all~


I jumped on the chance, and with her permission I forwarded her request through the forums of the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast, and the Dice Tower knowing that several folks would also want to join in the effort. Truth be told it has touched me how many have expressed an interest or already sent games both directly to her or to me to send in a large package.

Her is a list of what we she is receiving. I will update it as she lets me know of other games she gets or I get games to send to her.
