The NEW Heat of Battle VIII, August 8-10, 2014

Tickets are now on sale!

This year, we're expanding! Tactics and strategies from WWII were influenced by prior history, and remain relevant today. Museum visitors can see that play out at Heat of Battle VIII.

If you are a Game Master (of ANY board or miniature game simulating a historic American military action), bring it! Game Masters get in free for all three days. You may just want to come and play, and enjoy America's WWII Museum.

All games happen inside the Museum, and among the visitors. It's a great chance to both educate and grow the hobby.

View the Preliminary Game List.
