Infinity RPG Now Available In Print Form

Sure, Infinity is set in a distant future where humanity’s spread out among the stars, and I’m sure that paper books are a bit passe, and even these days, many people like books in digital form.

Battlefront Launches ‘Nam Website, Has Sale on Stock

My dad was drafted for the Vietnam war. Though he never ended up in-country, he did train to drive an APC. Considering what I learned later during a Vietnam War History class that I took, I’m glad he didn’t end up over there. It probably wouldn’t’ve gone well. The Vietnam War is one that’s not often talked about in gaming circles. But Battlefront is looking to change that with ‘Nam, their minis game set during that conflict. They’ve got a new website up and running, and they’re celebrating with a sale on everything in the shop.
