At this point, I intend to go to Heat of Battle. Went to first two and then missed last two due to other commitments. A little early to commit, but I will go if I can. I spent most of my adult life in New Orleans area........I don't miss living there, but I do like to visit.
FTF between El Dorado and West Monroe is certainly a possibility. That's what?.....an hour plus drive? I'm retired, so my schedule is pretty flexible and I have a table where games can be set up and left between sessions if that's a consideration. I tend to play operational and strategic level games vs tactical level, but I'm flexible. Was into CDGs with a small group before moving (back) here about 18 months ago. Currently playing Paths of Glory via Cyberboard. Going down to New Orleans Thursday for Bayou Wars and have a few things to do beforehand, but will be available to get together after that. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to propose some titles we could get together and play.
