I am looking for wargamers in my local area (Burke VA) and am sending notes to a few people who appear close on CONSIM.

I used to play wargames a lot in the glory days of SPI-Avalon Hill… but work and family forced me to put further playing off for a few decades (57 years old now).  I am looking for two things.

-          I teach at the Marine Corps War College and I plan to use a few games in the classroom.  I need some folks who will help explain some of the new games that I am not yet familiar with (Polis, For the People, Washington’s War, Fire in the Lake, Churchill, and a few others)


-          Persons interested in getting together on a regular or semi-regular basis for friendly games.


It would be great to link up with folks who would also enjoy having a football game on in the background (once in awhile) .

If anyone is part of a regular group and is looking for a new member (I will bring cupcakes) please let me know.  Also, if anyone is interested in forming a group (rotating play between homes) I am also interested.

I can be contacted at

Thank you for your time and attention.

Rich -- besides MailSteward, what's that other email utility program you use alongside Apple Mail? I recall you showing me two different applications, but I can't remember the second one. I'm trying to find a better way to manage/archive emails.
