My game interest runs a wide gamut from miniatures, to wargames and Euro games. I tend to prefer games that play fairly fast, at least compared to other games in the genre. So, I typically shy away from 2 hour Euro's and 4+ hour wargames and miniatures games. It's not that I have game ADD--I just prefer my games to maintain excitement, and that's difficult to do when a game runs for a long time.
I was very struck by an article in Boardgame News called "The Casual Wargamers Club" by Matt Thrower. This reflects my view on gaming very well:http://www.boardgamenews.com/index.php/boardgamenews/comment...
