Take Advantage Of Shrapnel Games' Memorial Day Sale – All Military Games Discounted Thru May 28th
Spring is heating up, which means Summer is right around the corner. That means soon it will be pool days, barbecues, and trips to the beach. Short shorts, tank tops, and bathing suits are the wardrobe of the season. It's time for road trips, adventures, and stargazing under the Summer sky. Okay, maybe Summer is like that for some people, but not for me. I don't like the sun, shorts, or hot weather. I don't really like pools and the beach is all sandy. If you're one of those folks who loves Summer and the oppressive weather that comes with it, I think that's awesome. But, I'll be in my hoodie, playing games in the air conditioning.
The beginning of the Summer season is marked by Memorial Day, which since 1971 has been on the last Monday of every May. Just a little history lesson: The first national Memorial Day was in 1868, but was called Decoration Day. It was started to memorialize those who died in the Civil War, but later the name was changed and it became a day to honor those who died in all wars. Though we celebrate with barbecues and a long weekend, it is a somewhat solemn occasion.
So, to recognize the soldiers who died defending our country, Shrapnel Games, a premier publisher of war games and strategy games, is having a Memorial Day sale, but only on their war games. The sale has already begun and lasts through May 28th. In addition, Shrapnel Games always offers a 10% discount to active duty and retired military members. Visit their website for more information .
