    With winter finally coming to us all, it is time to turn our attention to the months of November and December. As many of you probably know, these two months are filled with a myriad of different holidays across the different cultures, including (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. Aside from that, many people spend this time of the year with their family and/or travelling. As such, we, the Expeditionary Conclave, felt it best not to host new games during these two months. Rather we will dedicate this time to do a recap of the more popular games we hosted during the last year and as such, we will spend the nine weekends of these two months revisiting nine of our games (the last two events will be held on the last two Fridays of December, as to not interfere with Christmas and New Year's celebrations). 
    This weeks game will be Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2!
     
    Event layout
    Saturday, the 5th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 5pm EDT: Speed Runners
    Saturday, the 12th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Team Fortress 2
    Saturday, the 19th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: MechWarrior Online
    Saturday, the 26th of November, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Rising Storm/ Red Orchestra 2
    Saturday, the 3rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Tabletop Simulator
    Saturday, the 10th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Guns of Icarus Online
    Saturday, the 17th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Payday 2
    Friday, the 23rd of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Dungeon Defenders 2
    Friday, the 30th of December, at 9pm GMT/ 4pm EDT: Burnout: Paradise
     
    And just to make things even more fun, we'll put those of you who manage to attend all events in their entire duration down for one of our rare contest pips, for when forum awards make a return.
