I finally did it.....I admitted to a BGG merchant that I was a Wargameholic.....that I have a problem......and need help......robot

Worse, I'm a card-carrying Grognard, so I was into it all....playing, designing, moding, collecting.... shake

And no remorse, none. A hard case. Incurable. shakeshakeshake

Ancients, Dark Ages, Medieval, Rev War, Modern, Sci Fi- if it was out on the table I played. Anytime. Anywhere. In public sometimes....

Those games I listed on MyGeek......maybe a tenth of my actual annual intake.

My Wife's almost as bad, but......she's got the stone wall of Denial. She'll be tough to crack. Intervention-no other way

My name is Rob......and I'm a....... Wargamer..... goo

I sometimes find myself on a hill or high elevation with a good view and think to myself, "This would be a great spot to place artillery. Wonder what kind of range I’d get?"

I wish to kill you, be at rest as to that, but to kill you quietly in a snug, remote place, where you will not be able to boast of your death to anybody

I go into a bathroom with hex-shaped tile flooring, and immediately begin to imagine terrain, facing, ZOCs...

At the moment I've just acquired 60 plastic Zulus from Wargames Factory and am painting them right now. I don't have a game in mind for them, I don't need them for anything at the moment. But someday I will.

I need help

Whenever I'm in a game store, I pick up a wargame and pretend to read whatever descriptive blurb is on the box.

But in reality I just like fondling wargames.

To my ears, a box fart is the sweetest sound on Earth.

Please help (or send earplugs).

These are the warning signs. When you can't get through the week without another handful of those 2.5x3.5 uline zippies, it's far far too late.

Does buying another miniature army when I already have nearly a dozen count? whistle

If it makes a difference, one of them is still unassembled, and mostly in unopened blisters/boxes. Wait, that probably makes it worse, doesn't it? shake

Would they work for that Rourke’s Drift block game from Worthington Games? Victoria Cross, I think, but could be mistaken.

Edit: Just checked - It is Victoria Cross, and s/b Rorke's Drift (no "u").

You didn't but them for no reason. The gaming Gods were sending you a sign to buy Victoria Cross. Now you just have to buy the Brits.

Indiscriminate use of robot smiley, tendencies to odd underlining, italics and capitalisation... yup, when your writing starts to look like GROGnads, you know you have a problem. Colors, quotes and incomprehensible puns will be next.

I am a wargamer - but that isn't my real problem. My real problem is that the local "wargames" group think that Axis & Allies is the
one true wargame", so I mostly just play other games ftf, and console myself with computer based wargames.

btw - Am I becoming delusional if I find myself playing Space Hulk and Small World in the hopes of scratching my wargaming itch? Or, are such light "barely wargames" the wargaming equivalent of methadone?

I noticed that the oyster crackers I was putting in my soup were hex shaped and I began to imagine a wargame based on that.
