A long-time customer, Marcin, lives in Krakow, Poland. Here was our recent email exchange:

The books arrived safely today. Many thanks!
I’ll try to snap a pic of TW2K box at the entrance to the Wawel

And my reply:

Yes! I would love to post that pic on my blog if you’ll let me.

Well, Marcin sent us not just the entrance pic, but many others as well. I am most definitely going to visit Krakow some day. So beautiful. Let’s dive in.

For non-gamers who have stumbled on this post, Twilight 2000 is a roleplaying game set in an alternate reality where Poland was at the center of the conflict in World War III. Fictional names will be in quotes.
