West Point Historic Gaming Weekend

The United States Military Academy at West Point has a fantastic museum that has started to offer historic game days at their location. We participated with this event in the Fall and they asked us to come down again in the Spring. If you are interested in historic games, then you should check out this event and have some fun.  To recap some of the events for the weekend:

Axis and Allies (massive Europe and Pacific double map) 
Conquest of the Empire
Wings of War (Even had Snoopy vs the Red Baron)
Battle Cry

We will be helping out again in the Fall, so you should come down to West Point and play some great historic games!
