Armchair General

Hampstead, NC, 01 February 2008

Our fellow gamers, we here at Shrapnel Games know that the bleak winter months in the Northern hemisphere is often a time of woe. Your gaming dollars are stretched thin by the cost of keeping warm. Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us and with that you’re going to be expected to shell out big bucks for some roses that will be dead in a week, and a dinner that will be flushed by the morning. And of course there’s the continuing crunch at the pump. Times are tough for gamers. But fear not, for Shrapnel Games will cure both your winter and economic blues at the same time!
