Teamwork makes the dream work!

Everyone was working so hard building entire armies, the least I could do was fuel the troops with coffee and tea!

Am army marches on its stomach and the commonwealth doesn’t do anything without a cup of tea on board first and the Germans love coffee so good work!

It was truly my pleasure @christianhou52 ,as @collins and a certain historical editor I know have said, an army travels on its stomach. I figure the same rule applies to gamers and playing on their stomachs … uh I don’t think that game out right πŸ™‚

hi Jennifer! guessing you didn’t have this level of excitement in mind?

Coffee, tea and dishes were nothing. Later I got to serve curry chicken and chips to 30 starving gamers and staff who hadn’t eaten for 8 hours. Next time I’ll just take it easy and build an army in a day like everyone else.

What are brownie points for if not redeeming them for sugary goodness πŸ˜‰

Too true @sneakyrabbit! I redeemed mine for first dibs on the pastries that were brought in Saturday and Sunday morning.
