Until a couple of years ago I was part of a group of regular wargamers. Every week we would meet up, play toy soldiers and drink a few beers.
Then things seemed to get "iffy". Attendance became unpredictable, organising things started to feel like a chore - focusing on studying seemed more important. I handed over organisation to someone else and it all fell apart pretty quickly.
But we kept in touch - we have our own Yahoo Group! Yay for technology!
But I have recently started to miss regular games - playing occasional games is OK, but I need a regular fix. So from next week we will be meeting up again, once a month. I think this will give a good balance - regular games but not so often that attending and organising becomes a chore. It will be good to see the old gang again.
