The return of “Temporary Structure” Adventures! Another successful year for and at the Midwwest Gaming Classic in Wisconsin. While the entire hotel was filled to the brim with everything video game related that you could imagine, an additional Temporary Structure (don’t call it a tent!) was set up for vendors, bands, and tables to play board games.

Started in 2011 and last worked on in March of 2014, it is more than time to try and finish this project up. This worklog will be abbreviated showing the highlights of this month’s progress; a more in-depth worklog (and the worklogs of other GHOSTS projects from other contestants) can be found on the Bitfix Forums.
