As part of preparing to run demos of The Fantasy Trip

Monday was our Retailer Day, when we invite local (and not-so-local) retailers to come see what's new, what's hot, and what's coming up. We feed them lunch, play games with them, and generally have a good time.

The nice thing about licensing a game with as much content and history as Warhammer 40,000
