Back to News Listing The Historicon Roster: War in the East Series!

Posted: Tuesday, July 02, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Less than two weeks are left until the Annual Press Conference at Historicon. We wanted to give you a sneak peek at the topics and the games involved at our 2013 event.

One of the key franchises to be part of the event will be War in the East. Joel Billings from 2by3games (www.2by3games.com) and Gary Grigsby, the wargaming god himself, will discuss the future development of the series and the upcoming Gary Grigsby’s War in the West 1943-45. This game covers the Allied campaigns in Western Europe starting with the summer 1943 invasions of Sicily and Italy and proceeding through to the invasion of France and the drive on into Germany.

It also covers the Allied strategic bombing campaign. Expanding and improving on the War in the East game system, WitW provides players the chance to pick alternative strategies in both the land and air war and much more!

If you will be there you and would like the chance to have chat with Joel and Gary then please stop by and visit our stand!

 

HISTORICON 2013 will take place July 18 to 21 in Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA
