Due to the efforts of friend and fellow wargamer James Womack, Aran & Franklin Engineering of Beaumont, TX have come though again and gifted us with sufficient funds to cover the costs of our convention t-shirts.
We are forever grateful to their support and through their generosity we will be able to donate 100% of the sales of our t-shirts to the Battleship Texas Foundation.
With all the latest reports about new leaks in TEXAS' hull, what's hype and what's reality? Andy Smith will address recent efforts to improve the structural integrity of the ship, efforts to control the recent flooding events, and compartment renovation efforts designed to improve future gatherings like ours.

We haven't touted recently registered wargames for Texas BROADSIDE! in a while so we thought we'd do so now. Here are five new games on the books, ready to entertain you at Texas BROADSIDE! 2017. From land, sea, and air. Miniature, board, and card. Old classics and newly invented. These fives games cover all the bases.
The first four wargames have been submitted by two returning and two brand new game masters. Let's take a look at the first of what we hope will be a long list of cool wargames.
Remember, volunteer to run one or more games for us and you'll receive free admission aboard USS TEXAS on Friday, October 13th, for our game master only game day, and a free convention t-shirt.

It's that time of the year again. Time to volunteer to Game Master for Texas BROADSIDE! 2017.
While we expect there to be more air-conditioned gaming space available than ever before, prime space and the larger tables, particularly suited for larger miniature games, will fill up fast. So get your submission(s) in early.
Volunteer to game master one game over the weekend and you'll receive free access to the ship on Friday, October 13th, for our game-master-only game day and a free convention t-shirt!
We are happy to welcome Bobe's Hobby House, TableTopGenerals, and Raven Banner Games back for another convention, as they all plan to join us for Texas BROADSIDE! 2017, October 13-15, 2017 aboard USS TEXAS.
After six years of advertising, organizing, and running Texas BROADSIDE!, we figured it was high time our web site got a makeover. To that end, we've decided to move away from our Webs host and switch to Weebly. What you see here now is a new set of Texas BROADSIDE! pages under the new home of Houston Beer and Pretzel Wargaming (http://beerandpretzelwargaming.com).
