If you can't find local players - go the Vassal route! My brother-in-law lives in Blanchard but he is in NW part of state so no help for FtF.

Lived there in the late 80's early 90's.

The only wargamers I found were in Pocatello.

Thats not too far away, but I would think there would be at least one other war gamer given the large euro gamer scene, there are several game shops in town but not one war game on any of the shelves !!

Didn't Idaho Falls used to have a Warhammer 40k shop somewhere in town? You might be able to find some hex & counter converts from that bunch... who knows?

Yes they do and that was one of the first shops I visited, but no war gaming which I find odd. The town actually has several shops that cater to gaming so it maybe just a matter of finding the right person who would be interested in playing something new. The town isn't that large but it does seem to have a very healthy gaming community.

And here I thought from the subject line that this would be a Fortress America thread or something.

Buy some gateway wargames and see if you can get some interest. Then it's just a matter of pulling them in... slowly :-)

I'm in Idaho Falls and looking for a game/group. I run Star Trek (my first love), Firefly, Star Wars d6,and several other sci-fi oriented games.

Did you send a geek mail? If not, go to the OP's profile by clicking on his name (the one in parenthesis) then at the bottom of his profile is a link to send a direct geek mail.

Hope you two hook up!

I live "up the road" a ways from you.. in Helena, MT. Just take I-15 up to exit 200.

Other than that, I can't say I know of any others between us.

Idaho Falls sounds like a Vietnam combat operation.

If miniatures count, aren't the Chain Attack podcast guys in/around Idaho Falls? Don't recall the brick and mortar side of the online store http://www.discountgamesinc.com/ but I thought that's where it was.
