I disappeared from here for a bit to spend a week in St. Augustine, Florida. Amidst surf and sun and playing on the beach, we took in the Castillo de San Marcos and the Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum (the 1st one of the now 80-strong chain) - both offered some gaming related images, and some games were played as well.
More posts to follow to address all of that. In the meantime, there's a 6 hour+ drive, with a 3-year old, waiting for me in the morning .
