Great Idea from Milan!

Great Idea from Milan!

This ‘cardboard’ table is a great idea.

The kick starter is over but I hope someone State side picks this up.

I like the size, connection options and portability.

Sea Kings.

Worthington Games, Sea Kings.

I applaud the effort here but guys….guys…… Nice vid, some middling stretch goals, and unfortunately unimaginitive buying options.

MMP Sale….really?

As an ardent fanboy of the MMP product suite…sans ASL [I’m just not there yet ok…]

I am pleased to see a sale. I should be pleased right? OCS, TCS,SCS and ASL stuff on sale. Right?

The first reaction is whoa!!! Those are low prices.

Then you realize this is ziplock copies. Phew. For a second I thought I was being penalized for PXXX ordering!

So we can relax and enjoy the Butterscotch Pudding…

Mid Turn 5

“He is approaching the bridge”. Said Philippe.

“Wait”. Was the terse reply from Nicolas.

“We should shoot now”.

“Wait”.

“But”.
