Played my first game in awhile. I got my wife to play her very first game with me and she actually won. How that be. Anyways, its great to be gaming again.

Always good to see a hoplite bash – liked the terrain as well. Thanks.

Many thanks.

Thank you!
It was actually great to have an opponent, I usually play solo, so having my wife as a gaming partner now, rocks.

Nicely done battle. Thanks for showing.

Very appropriate blog title for a Peloponnesian war battle :-)

One of my favorite books by Steven Pressfield.

What an awesome blog post! Hearty congrats on getting your wife to take up miniature arms against you, even if it did result in your defeat you're a winner in my book!

yes indeed…only after like 8 years of asking she finally wants to try it out…and she liked it…I think winning has went to her head.

This friday we are playing the Battle of Notium in 406 BC, a naval battle in the Peloponnesian wars. Should be fun.

"Darmok and Jalad…"

LOL! Sadly, that was my first thought too.
