I know this is a bit of a long shot but can't hurt to ask. While in the USAF stationed in Germany from 1997 to 2001, my son and I attended a gaming convention at a British army base somewhere close to the Rhine. Don't suppose anyone would know what base it could have been?

Maybe it was Rheindahlen? There used to be an annual show there.

That was my first thought but my memory is pretty fuzzy. You are probably correct.

Yep that's the place!! My son and I attended sometime between 97-2001. The highlight was playing a WWII tank game as Americans against an active German tank commander and his son, who of course played Germans.
