This year Alderac Entertainment Group, Fantasy Flight Games, and Mayfair Games came together to bring some gaming fun to a group of deserving kids. The three companies donated various games from their library to the Alabama Baptist Childrens' Home. This facility, located in Mobile, AL operates a boys and girls home for elementary through high school-aged children and teenagers in difficult situations. Some kids stay for years, others come and go depending on their situations, but the "parents" of the homes are always there to try to uplift and care for these kids.

The homes are often given donations during the holidays for presents for the boys and girls, including clothing and other needed items. We thought we could bring the homes some games that could provide some great quality time activities for them.

I'd like to thank the great folks at Fantasy Flight and Mayfair who helped spread the spirit of the season with us at AEG. And honestly extra kudos to Mayfair who sent so much extra that it wouldn't even fit in the shot below!

Each game sent had two copies, one to be permanently in the boys home and other in the girls home.



Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

That is definitely the best thing that I have read the last couple of weeks. I wish I would have known sooner else I would have contributed. Let me know if there is anything I can do. Keep up the good work.
