I've been wanting to get back into face-to-face gaming for some time now. I haven't been having much luck lately so I find myself turning more and more towards internet play (thank goodness for VASSAL and Brettspielwelt!). I haven't done much face to face gaming other than the odd game here and there with a family member. In an age of computer and video games coupled with the area in which I live (the midwest), finding a face-to-face gaming group has proven to be a nearly impossible task. Being primarily a Grognard at heart hasn't exactly helped matters either. The ultimate board game for me would be Europe Engulfed
, if only I could find someone willing to play out the full 15 to 20+ hours this game requires (broken up up over a weekend of course), I would buy it in a heart beat. Anyone willing to play this with me would have great potential to become a friend for life too! I would preferably like to find a wargaming group, but I know that is a tall order. I'm usually not too particular when it comes to the types of games I'll play anyway and Euro's are perfectly fine with me. I used to play Dungeons and Dragons
back during its heyday and wouldn't mind getting back into it again with the right group(or D20 Modern
, Star Wars
). For the most part, I skipped over the whole Magic: The Gathering
/collectible card game craze, so I know virtually nothing about CCG's. It just didn't appeal to me very much at the time. Now is a different story however. I have a pretty open mindset when it comes to games and will try just about anything. I live in Gladstone, Missouri, a township of North Kansas City, Missouri. I'll drive far and wide if I find the right group.
Feel free to send me an e-mail if you would like to have me attend your group. My e-mail adress is firstname.lastname@example.org
