Oldest Game on Sign-ups sheet?

published by TAHGC, 1961

Kudos to Joel Dalenberg of Missoula, Montana. We believe he has signed up for perhaps the oldest game we have yet seen to possible grace the gaming tables at CSW Expo 2017. We are talking about none other than TAGHC's Air Empire, pubilshed in 1961. How's that for a trip down Memory Lane?


Attendee Page Update

The Attendee Page is now updated. We're pleased to note we've surpassed the 150 Registration milestone mark early on with this latest Expo site update. We are working now on adding 50+ new registrations to our Game Sign-ups page and we will announce as soon as that update is complete.
