Where is everybody?

Post  squalie on Sat Jul 05, 2014 10:05 am

Hey crew.

 I've noticed that the site has been quiet of late. I get that summers are a fickle creature for gaming - especially with fellows with families. Weddings and holidays can make it difficult to organize a nerd gathering, but what I'm curious about is where are the fellas that used to game?

Where's Nathan.A., Bob, Geoff, Pud (who I've even pm'd), Frank, epegnr, etc....

 I'm calling dudes out! Smile. At least post here every once in awhile promising to TRY to get a game in, join a league or whatever.  Our numbers are dwindling, and it's making me a touch concerned. We have a good bunch of lads a I'd hate to lose some of them.

 I've messaged a few guys but have had no replies. None.  That's rude and it hurts my bad feelings.  At least tell me to &@$? Off. Wink

 So...what gives?

I know summer is always slow for everyone, I've dropped with my posting as well. Lets make an effort to reconnect with all the other good lads out there that are missing.

I am new to this warhammer thingy. How do you play? Sighs sarcastically. I still havent touched my army since garagecon. I went into my hobby room and was overwhelmed at where to start. My wife and i are going to bc this turnaround and last one i was ill for three weeks from taking care of my nephews the turnaround before. For those that dont know that stretch of time off and work is two and a half months. I pledge to get at least two games in by the end of my next turnaround.

I'm moving back to Vancouver as of the 21st, but I'd love to game with anyone who has some time before then.

Sorry guys I've been dropping the ball as we'll lately. This moving thing is really time consuming. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll be back to my usual schedule though and I might even be able to get some games in.

I have noticed a decline in our numbers over the past while though and it is definitely worrisome. We maybe need to make more effort as a group to be more inviting or provide more opportunities for new players to get involved. I've said this on more than one occasion, the problem is, all of us have jobs and/or families or real life commitments at different schedules so it makes it difficult to set anything up.

Yep , I know I haven't even picked up a fig since the ladt time don came up for some games. For me its hard to get enthuesd to play when there are so few of us playing and only so much money to spend on the hobby with everything else life throughs my way... if it sounds like an excuse well it is

I'm hoping that I made it clear that I'm not talking about everyone that has replied so far. You guys play, even when things get tough.

The names that I called out are guys that I want to continue playing. I hope, quite frankly, that they're flattered that a group misses their company and take this thread the right way..

Yeah I havent really heard from anyone in a while either... oh wait that might have been my fault.

I personally had to take a short break from painting, and there was also a video game that my friends lured me into playing so that took up lots of my time.

Now video games are played and the itch to paint is creeping in, I'm back baby!

But yeah seriously, whats with all those other guys, jeez.

If it doesn't happen in Saskatoon, you'll get your hobby battery charged in full at the end of the month @ Warhammer'd. Is it just Don and Carson travelling to that?

I would love to go but that's one of them... need a fully painted army to even enter. And I have yet to reach that level of dedication unfortunately.

In all fairness Don. I try to connect with you to have a game at least once every week or two but never seems to pan out. The sneaky Skaven are always ready to get their asses handed to them. In fact Sean's dwarfs just finished cleaning rat guts off their axes. So just calling calling you out Wink
