After a month off, the MBS newsletter is back. There is some exciting stuff to cover this time around, so lets get started!
First up, be sure to check out episodes 19 and 20 of the MBS Podcast! In Ep. 19, Greg and I interviewed historian Jon Parshall about the Battle of Midway. In Ep 20, we looked at the new 2.5 rules for Dystopian Wars, and reviewed the submarine-themed boardgame They Come Unseen.

Until next time…
