And so it begins......



Triples is just round the corner and last night I spent time working through my list, not that it's that big and due to Baccus not quite getting the new French infantry finished it just got a little shorter. No hardship as I will get them sent as soon as they are ready which will be fairly soon.

No the inspiration for this post it not my list, not even Lee's list if he has one. I got home from work yesterday to see my son with pencil in hand and a puzzled look on his face. "What you doing son?" "Making a List says he" "what for I ask" "Triples" comes the reply!

I had asked him Monday morning before going to work if he wanted to come to the show as his sister has swimming in the morning and a party later, both of which he would have to sit through. He was more than happy to come along as I knew he would as the whole hobby fascinates him and he often watches me painting or asks about the games and he wants to get more cowboy games in.

Now he is only seven, still too young for some of the games I play but plays a mean game of Bonnanza and has been playing German or Euro games for a couple of years. I see us actually taking part in a few participation games and if you see two kids one big and another rather small, please come up and say hello, he may even show you his toys.

  4. I have had the best times wargaming with my sons, seven is the perfect age...he can be your dice monkey (as opposed to powder monkey) when you play your own games.
