Outside of the grim-dark 41st millennium, we love and support all of our troops at home and abroad. With that in mind, Game Kastle is hosting a special charity 40k tournament for Operation Care & Comfort, an organization that sends care packages to soldiers, veterans and their families. We will be charging a $7 entry fee for prize support for participants in the tournament, but we are asking each participant to bring at least one item to be donated to OC&C. We are looking at additional methods to reward those who bring in a substantial amount of goods. So join Game Kastle June 30th for a day filled with awesomely fun 40k battles for a great cause!
Below is a note from our TO clarifying the kind of donation items we are looking for, as well as an anecdote about how important OC&C has been for him during his service:
”Hey guys, this is Grant here your local Eldar guy I just wanted to tell you about the next big tournament that I am going to run at Game Kastle. It's going to be a great event that anyone can participate in, im really excited cause it's giving back to a great cause.
When I was deployed last year, being away from my family and friends back home took a real toll on me, and the things I took for granted always having growing up weren't there. It was definitely very hard to keep positive, but it was about my third week there my unit received an extremely large package that brightened our hopes. Inside were letters, pictures, and all kinds of things we hadn't seen since we left. There was candy, pudding, nature bars, cookies, mac and cheese, breakfast cereal and other things that we loved to eat. It made us feel like we're back home. Being the medic for my marines I know how much it means to stay focused and positive, because someone that breaks is a hazard to himself and everyone in the unit. These packages meant so much too us, they kept morale up and made my marines feel like people still appreciated what we were doing.
So guys this tournament is going to be a special one, it's going to be for a great cause. At the tournament, I'm asking that you bring your usual army, books, lists, and mojo but also a few things to donate to our troops. Two weeks after the tournament on July 14th I will take all the donations down to the American Legion and with the help of Operation Care and Comfort I'll box them up to send to the troops. Again this is something that a lot of troops look forward to each month, not only does it raise morale but it's also something that every solider, sailor, airmen and marine smiles over.”

In Big Guns Never Tire, each player places 2 objectives, one in their own deployment zone, the other in their opponent's following normal objective placement rules (4 total for this objective on the table).
