One of my school's young new teachers was recalled last fall and shipped over in February. There was staff talk of a care basket. I thought to collect funds and buy a bunch of games to send to him and his platoon. Fellow teachers thought it was a great idea and were very generous.

I forgot two or three of the games I sent but, these are most of them. I sent some regular playing cards and a 40k novel also.

I wanted two person as well as small and large group games. Here they are, in no particular order. Oh, I sent them in April. They chased him around Iraq for quite awhile. He got them the end of July. He may be home next month.

I imagined half the platoon gathered around this one raising hell.

Small group. Most folks like it. Hope no one has their weapon at the table.

I can see real money or cigarettes being used in this one.
