This Week at ADB, Inc., 15-21 December 2013

Steve Cole reports: 

This was a week of steady work as we tried to focus on new products instead of the impending Christmas holiday. The weather this week was somewhat warmer until Friday, when a major front hit and temperatures dropped like a rock, forcing us to close the office due to snow on Saturday. (Turned out not to be enough snow to matter but nobody wanted to risk being at the office if it did amount to more.) The spam storm mostly remained at something under 200 per day. The contractors finished the repairs to the roof from the hail storm last fall.

New on e23, Wargame Vault, and DriveThru RPG this week: Prochorovka-Armor at Kursk. 

New on DriveThru RPG: Klingon Armada Nova and Admiral editions.

New on Wargame Vault: Klingon Armada Nova and Admiral editions.
