Russians vs. French.
July 3rd, 2010 at The Gamer's Realm.
World Cup Saturday starts with an early morning game at the Bavarian Grill.
After eating (and drinking) breakfast while watching Germany crush Argentina 4-0,
Steve and I stayed for Spain v. Uruguay, more food and bier!
Afterwards, we took our Naps to The Gamer's Realm in Richardson to show 'em how it's done.
Steve and our new friend Nick text game details to far away friends.
I was enjoying Weisserspargel Soup and liquid bread.
We managed to make it to The Gamer's Realm.

Steve makes me pay by charging and destroying one of the batteries.
The Russian Grenadiers move behind the town to get away from the guns.
Battle on the Hill.
Now this is an interesting photo. This couple has dropped by the shop to look around.
The made a bee-line to our table and watched for a while instead of the other tables
with the unpainted figures. This is how we attract new people to the hobby.
Now there's a fight going on outside of the town.
Finally the Russian conscripts give way. The French drive the Grendiers out of the town.
And then we call it a good day!
