Ladies and Gentlemen,


I will be in San Diego from Mid October until mid December. I am hoping to get some wargaming in while I am in the states. Can anyone tell me if there are any wargaming groups in the San Diego area? If no groups per say, are there at least some players hanging around that would be up for playing once in a while?

I will be staying on the San Diego Marine Corps Recruit Depot if you are familiar with the area.



Thanks

Ben

There is a group that meets at Pair a Dice games in Vista. If you're at Camp Pendleton, it should be pretty close for you. I believe they meet on the 1st, 3rd (and 5th, if it exists) Thursday of the month.

FYI, there is one wargame group listed.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Their homepage shows meetings on the 14th and 28th this month (2nd and 4th Thursdays).

You might be right, I'm not sure when they meet. The board gaming group also meets on those days, but now that I think of it, there's usually a group of guys playing miniatures or wargames as well.

Ah. I think we are both right. I was aware only of the euro group that meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday (and I thought that was the group you were discussing). Looking at the Pairadice calendar however, I see that there is a "Historical Wargaming" event on the 1st and 3rd Thrusday this month. I'll add that to the San Diego Boardgame Groups.

Thanks for the info!

I will check out the sites and see if anyone is interested in meeting up. In the off chance that some Southern Californian sees this thread and is looking for an opponent, please contact me. I will play anything from Axis and Allies to ASL and everything in between.

If I'm not mistaken, the recruiting center is not too far from downtown San Diego. Head over to the gamestore in Old Town San Diego on Harney St. They are the more wargame-centric store. You should be able to find gamers there.
Good luck.
