ASL Sniper Cards

As with many in the ASL community, I have spent a fair amount of my ASL time personalizing and accessorizing my ASL kit.  Featured here is my set of sniper activation number reminder cards.  Each nationality gets their own set of 3 double-sided cards numbered 2-7.    I find that it gives each nationality a bit of a distinctive flair to have their national flag on the gaming table while serving in a functional role. 

The construction of these cards was relatively simple.  I embellished the numbers onto the flag images in Word, printed and cut out to size.  Then I laminated them together using workplace ID lamination sheets, the perfect size for card shaped gaming enhancements.

Games Plus Auction 2012

This weekend is the Games Plus annual game auction in Mount Prospect, Illinois.  Friday night, March 9, is historical game auction night starting at 7pm.  Sadly, I am not sure I will be able to make it this year.

Merry Christmas 1066

This past Christmas my wife commissioned a tree skirt from our friends at the RavenStone Castle featuring fragments from the Bayeux Tapestry.  I hope to eventually theme the whole tree with appropriate medieval decoration.  Then I hope to convince someone to play a Battle of Hastings scenario next to the tree....anyone?
Rose Michel does an amazing job turning medieval fabrics into tapestries and various decorations which she sells at rennaissance fairs and craft shows around the country.  She also sells them from her home, a massive castle built in the county in Harvard, Illinois which she and her family run as a Bed and Breakfast.
