You also missed out on enjoying the spacious and luxurious setting that establishes a new standard for in-store gaming facilities but I will simply let the photos tell the story of our superlative event.

We extend a Sincere Thank You to Mike and the entire crew of Impact Games for hosting our event and look forward to scheduling in more gaming in the future at this fantastic Center for Gaming that will certainly have a positive Impact on our community. I encourage all of the members of Big Muddy Historical Gaming Alliance and our overall community to give this spot a serious look.
