Stranger Things Have Happened: Preview

The new Victory Point Games game, Mound Builders, is stirring up quite a bit of interest. Blog author Dave Nichols is amazed that someone would be able to design a war game about the Mississippian civilization, and Dave can't wait to get his hands on it because of his special interest in the period. His blog is an eclectic mix of subjects and is definitely worth a look. He's also got a link to a blog titled 'Baby Got Bactria'... how can that not you grab your attention?
