My dad taught me about gaming in the mid-late 70's. Panzerblitz, and P-leader, 1776, Blitzkreig, and the like. He gave me Tactics II for my 8th birthday, or was it christmas? I got sidetracked into D & D for a while, then no gaming for a long time. Then I was re-introduced to gaming by learning that an acquaintance was a gamer, Thanks Bob! I have since gone to a few gaming events, and now run a gaming group out of a local library once a month to try to corrupt others.

not big enough, we'll see how much I can spand until Xmas forces the $ elsewhere

Matt --- I had another thought for multi-player, "strategic" level, might-be-playable--in-4-hours games (though I see it's out of print so you'd need to shop around) but Sword of Rome would be a winner. Wellington would also be a good. Wellington might actually be better as I see it's a. still available and b. cheap. I'm talking about the GMT game. The Napoleonic Wars also by GMT might be good too.
Good stuff ! There'll be a small bunch of us from Montreal as usual ... Marc and I should be there just after lunch on Friday, both took the day off. Tim probably not able to make it this year, but he said that last year so we'll see.
It sounds as though reality is a factor in your gaming, and I guess that's unavoidable. But as long as someone's gaming, even if it's a couple of hours a week, it's still better than nothing at all.
