Wargames I own, are highly rated and desired, but I just don't get into.

I have tried them, they look nice, and a great many wargamers say they are highly desirable.

Problem is, I have tried them, and I just don't get that itch to try them again.

I do get around to another go, and still no thrill.

Keeping them is desired though - they hold high value and as I meet new gamers with some frequency - I might just find someone to click with on these.

My copy is in fantastic shape - looks really nice, and I have played it three times.

...but it just does not do anything for me.

Read the rules, punched the counters, piddled with it.

Recently looking to trade it away, and I can't find the rules!

Probably in a closet or under a bed; who knows. I did find the PDF ones though.

The game just does nothing for me.

The Area/Impulse games get a lot of hype, and a recently met friend who is a WBC champ at them, but I they don't grab me.

Like Breakout Normandy...not grabbing me.

Dave Long did come over and showed me and Stuart the ropes, we had a fun time, but the game remains in its ziplock, and we have not picked it up since.

Notice a pattern here - Area Impulse games just don't grab me or my gaming buddies.
