Demo Games Day

I spent a Saturday in Maryland at Dropzone Games where I had a chance to see this great tabletop gaming store and run some demo games as well as try out some new games.  Shades organized the event, and beside my table set up for The Uncharted Seas was a setup for Deep Wars (two nautical themed games paired together), in the same room with games of Alkemy, Mercs, and Kings of War.
