I attended the gaming event at The Fort Devens Museum on Saturday October 15. This was a small event put on by local gamers to introduce the public to historical miniatures. There were a wide variety of games and the event was very well attended. I enjoyed myself very much, met local gamers I never knew were out there and had a wonderful time.
This is the second year for the Fort Devens event. It is put on by Peter Leavitt who did a wonderful job. Peter was extremely friendly and took the time to show me around and I introduce me to several locals. One individual I met was Adam Carriere of the website Fencing Frog. Adam was putting on an American Civil War game. There were also a neat China 1936 game and an outstanding Raid on Dearfield game.

As you can tell I had a great time. It was an intimate atmosphere resembling a club game night. Having exhibits around you on the history of fort devens added to the event. I look forward to attending again next year. Highly recommended!
