In Harry Pearson's excellent memoir of his wargaming life (“Achtung Schweinehund!”) he quotes a friend who's an alcoholic commenting about always thinking there’s one guy worse than you until you become “that guy.” And every alcoholic has a guy who fits that role until they realize they have become that guy. Well, this last week I had a “that guy” moment when my 30-pound OGRE deluxe game showed up on the doorstep. (See the photos section for a size comparison with Panzerblitz.)
True, legendary game hoarder Rick Wagoner has always been everybody’s “that guy”, but since he has moved to Texas I fear I may be now be in contention for the distinction of being someone else’s “That Guy.” I mean, what the hell was I thinking when I ordered this monstrosity? Where am I even going to find a place for this thing? (It doesn’t fit in the game closet.)
But then again, maybe it’s not that bad. I mean, I only have ~350-400 games. (I've lost count.) That’s not too excessive....? Right? Right?
OK, OK, I can do this....
Hi, my name is Dave and I’m an obsessive accumulator of wargames....
