Hey Folks!

As we rapidly approach February 14, it seems only appropriate to note the occasion in the manner our beloved game permits. We should dust off our Infantry Tanks (Mk III) and tungsten cored Cupid's arrows (an imperfect metaphor, I admit-- the Valentine doesn't have APDS) and have ourselves a slightly early Valentine's Day massacre.

As always, new players are definitely welcome! If this is your first time with us, please let us know so we can pack a few simpler scenarios to ease the learning curve a bit. If you'd like to play Starter Kit games, please make sure to bring them-- I only own SK3.

Be sure to take note of the location for this one-- Fantasy Flight Games is gonna be packed on Saturday, so I've reserved a couple tables at The Source.

Details:
Day:
2/8/20
Time: 10:00am -- 6:00pm. Our table reservation ends at 6:00pm, so we'll need to be done and packed by then.
Location: The Source Comics and Games 2057 Snelling Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113


Here's a list of scenarios featuring our vehicle du jour. Sadly, it's somewhat tricky to find scenarios featuring the Valentine, so balance and playing time have gone by the wayside.

Spoiler alert - There should be a scenario with Valentines in the next Rally Point release. Also a scenario featuring the Minnesota National Guard (the 34th Division) will be in it as well.

One would think that the U.S. Division with the most time served in combat in the European Theater could get a few scenarios that includes them. Now next up could be the 99th "Viking" Independent Rifle Regiment; Check out THEIR record of actions!;)

Double spoiler - I already got a meaty 99th scenario designed - destined for a future Rally Point.
