We’re coming up on our year anniversary in a month. We've had so much interaction and fun with you all on facebook and twitter! Resulting in our general news updates having lost some love...
This month we have so many events it’s crazy... and we’re going to just be ramping up the activities. Expanding on Theme Nights into Theme days with hours and hours of fun. Starting up various leagues and gaming tournaments.
