About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom, United Kingdom
A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).

It took a bit of doing, but I do seem to have managed to sort out all the pics of the games. There are a few where I either don't know who was running them, what the game was or both.

  15. The story of casino games is fascinating and wonderful, one among which lies The Game of Poker. Poker is a game of cards, played for money. The free vbucks was first introduced as its presence among gamblers, during the early 18th century. Since then, it has undergone various moulds, as and when its players felt the necessity.
