Cold Wars 2018, Part 1

I had a great time at Cold Wars this year.  Thanks to the convention staff for running an excellent convention, including major improvements to registration!

My son and I ran two Sharp Practice AWI games - a sort of mini-campaign entitled Race Across Carolina.  I was pleased with how the games turned out and the folks playing seemed to enjoy the scenarios.  Of course it's always a learning experience for me and I picked up some good points for improving future games (starting with Historicon this summer).

Here is a first shot at posting some photos from the games; I hope to publish a more detailed AAR in the near future.
