My gaming preferences have changed over the years. I am less in to mini's these days because I have less time to paint them and I do prefer them painted. Pre-paints are a god send but I am always wary of the quality and cost. And then in 2012 I discovered SMG
. Happy days!
I enjoy uncomplicated war games such as M44
and Conflict of Heroes
and more recently, Heroes of Normandie
. For solo play I opt for ATZ
, The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game
, Hornet Leader: Carrier Air Operations
or resort to Dominion
on-line at Isotropic or M44 at DoW.
I like to play Steam
with my Olds and Brothers. No dice or luck involved makes this a great game. I go gaming most Thursdays at the Legion in Newport Pagnall where I get to try (and buy) a whole host of Euro's or down the Brave Old Oak in Towcester.
My gaming targets are to get my girls in to gaming. I live in hope that one day one of them will ask to play Twilight Struggle
or Axis & Allies Miniatures
, enjoy it and want to play again. I realise this is a long way off yet and between now and then there is plenty of time to play Aquaretto
and the like.
Having kids enables me to be allowed to go to Essen. She who must be obeyed knows I will bring back good games for the girls that otherwise I may miss.
