Come join HMGS-Midwest and Games Plus in supporting Battlefront's "Toys for Tots"

This year we are proud to announce gaming for a charitable cause, on Wednesday, December 2nd. Hosted at Games Plus in Mt, Prospect IL. We will be kicking off the event in two phases.

From 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM, we will be running a mega-Flames of War game, based on 1942 Western Desert (mid war). Bring your own 1200 point army or use a loaner.

The evening session, will run from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, and will be a repeat of the mid war mega game, along with a Team Yankee table run by Darrell Hartsig.

The fee to play will be one toy (unwrapped) around $15. USD Players can game in both sessions in they bring two toys. Prizes will be randomly awarded by Battlefront, on a national scale. Play twice and double your chances.
