Man I hate to break it to you, but she knows exactly what you are up to. Once you get done with all the heavy lifting and repairs, it ain't gonna be a game room!

The bottom shelf holds old Fire & Movement and other review mags. Other ziploc games are stored here and there




Nice shelf! Looks familiar....
IKEA Expedit?

When it is your turn to send a VASSAL move, the wait is excruciating. When it's my turn, well, I've been busy.

Not to mention the guitars and band setup! No such spacious luxury in Hong Kong! That room is probably bigger then 75% of people's homes here!

Yeah, I think that one room is probably bigger than my entire apartment.

My "Casino" like mat has finally arrived and as promised here is a photo of it: Note that I have cut some of the same material and used it to line my dice tower inner surfaces. Now the dice tower is MUCH quieter than before AND I think the dice actually bounce around better inside because the mat is actually very bouncy because of the underlying rubber padding!



(On the table is a copy of The Great War in Europe: Deluxe Edition's Western Map, underneath the map (out of sight) is a VPG game I am play-testing!)

Here is another photo of the table top closer up (photo taken for the new slipcase geeklist thread) and yes, that is a mint/unpunched copy of PanzerBlitz.

There is a crease where it was badly folded during shipping... should probably complain about it, but since I am on the other side of the world its probably not worth the effort. I am going to test my iron on a spare bit of the fabric to see if it is iron safe. If it is, it should iron out nicely.

Our War Room in use. Yes, Lorelei (the little girl) was an active player in that game. She and I ended up tying for third place.

Three pretty young ladies playing an area impulse game on a very grand table with what looks like lovely dining chairs... life is good!

The best books are actually the source books - The paperbacks stacked on the right. Great stuff, until I realized I needed some one smarter than me to help me know what to do with the data, so I started buying analysis books about Arrian, and Thucidydes etc. Drives my wife nuts when I sit in bed with 3 books flipping back and forth.
