GA--P, you gotta help me; I don't feel the urge to play.

S--O.k., L, take a deep breath. I'm here for you; we'll get through this together.
Now, remember what it was like when you were gaming; the thrill of the hunt, the need to find that perfect game to fill the empty space in your collection.

GA--Yes...reading reviews and comments, looking at the pictures, even downloading the rules if they were there. No, this isn't helping; I still feel down, man. I'm suffering here! I got the LT's**.

S--Hang on, you can do this. Picture what it felt like waiting for Brown to deliver. Then holding that new, shrink-wrapped game. Remember lifting the lid and seeing all those great bits and unpunched pieces.

GA--That's a great feeling, that anticipation. And the smell of a new game.
But I just don't have the thirst for a new game. Everything seems flat. The world seems flat and lifeless. I'm just gonna play a video game, or maybe watch some reality t.v.

S--NO! Hold on, you can do this!
Let's just concentrate on the here and now, one hour at a time. How about a solitaire game of Blokus? Or set up a scenario of Memoir '44? Just set it up, feel the pieces. Soon you'll be planning a strategy.

GA--Memoir '44. Yeah, that sounds good.
Do you think Age of Napoleon would be something I'd like? I should read some reviews and comments on it.

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

And here I was thinking you were looking for a way to stop. That thought scared me... I don't want to stop. I won't stop.
