Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage
Twilight Struggle
Conflict of Heroes: Storms of Steel - Kursk 1943
C&C Ancients

I'd love to learn/play these with someone local, I often try to attend several local gaming groups but they always seem to be so euro-centric, light strategy, which I enjoy very much, but I stare at these games wanting a face to face opponent to play with consistently and delve deeper into the scenarios, etc. - my wife cringes at "wargames". Anyway if anyone's interested in the area shoot me a PM, thanks!

Might be farther than you want to go but you might try the Metro Seattle Gamers.

I've played an love all the above, but I'm on Mercer Island and usually time-limited.

Twilight Struggle is very doable over Vassal if you're up for that.

I've heard of Metro, but it's a nightmare to get from my work>daycare>home>Seattle to game during the week, and I think you have to pay (?), hence the search for "locals".

I've had a couple people PM about various nights, it'd be great to get a deeper/wargamerish group going up north (N Seattle, Edmonds, MLT, Shoreline, etc.) at like 3rd PL books or some other nice location, library, etc. I've met another BGGer on Sunday mornings a couple times for A Few Acres of Snow and Mage Knight so far and have a couple potential CoH games on the horizon.

The Sun. morning 3rd PL books is a great scene, quiet, huge tables, coffee, natural light, classical music, coffee...we have been getting there at 9 for a few hours of deeper games, and the regular 3rd PL game group starts up at 1:00 in the same location so if you were inclined one could game all day.

Give me a yell if you haven't found anyone yet.

My wife & I are in south Lynnwood. We prefer Caylus, Agricola and Puerto Rico, but also enjoy Race for the Galaxy every once in a while.

I haven't played a 'wargame' for many years, but used to enjoy Panzerblitz, Starship Troopers and was into SFB for a long time. Am willing to try a wargame...

I'm not a huge wargamer. In fact, the two I've played most were back in High School and that was Risk and Axis & Allies, but I'm in frequent search of a good monthly or weekly group or two. I've tried some local stores but the majority are very focused on games like Magic and D&D whereas I prefer the board game. I'd be willing to try any game and love the social aspect and competition even if I get my butt kicked.

I'm in Marysville so keep me in mind, as well.

Aaron

We're (four guys) going to be playing at 3rd PL tonight starting around 5-ish. Proposed games include Last Night on Earth and Tigris & Euphrates, anyone's welcome to join. I think I'm going to try to be down there Sun. morning as well for some wargames...maybe we just need to form a north end 3rd Place BGG guild or something and post meetups there. I've attempted the 3rd place spieler (sp?) meetups but no one is ever there, yet there seem to be people looking to play in the area...a guild would act as a loose message board...

Let me know and I'd be happy to update times/calendars.

Thanks for the invite! I've only played Tigris & Euphrates on the iPad and haven't really grasped the mechanics yet, but Last Night on Earth sounds appealing. Most likely won't be able to make tonight but if enough interest lies in creating a regular group at that location, I'd definitely sign up.

FYI: There is a Third Place Gamers meetup group.

They meet Wednesday nights usually, and Jenny has started to add Third Place Commons - Daytimers times to the group as well.

Probably another way to piggyback on existing groups, if you want.

I live in Arlington and I'm always looking for wargame opponents.

You could also check out Wednesday nights at Phoenix games in Mukilteo.
They don't play wargames.

Perfect - I'll post in the daytimers group, even if the gaming takes place in the evening. We've got to get this guild out there a little more, I'll IM everyone that I've had on prior lists about it...

There are quite a few wargamers that come to that game night. There's not usually time to play a decent wargame on Wed nights, though.

Also, see:
