What Drives You To Game?

Postby John Thomas8 » Tue Jun 04, 2013 10:50 pm

Is it primarily (and at what percent does the following apply):

The history?

The model making/figure painting?

The competition?

Game strategy?

The socializing?

For me, it's

The history? 60%

The model making/figure painting? 0%

The competition? 5%

Game strategy? 15%

The socializing? 20%

While I'm providing all the troops for this weekend's game, and provide them for all the games (but two, thanks to Ed) the only reason I make tanks and paint figures is to get them on the table. I don't paint well enough to be happy with the results.

I would've responded earlier but I really have no idea why I play wargames. A big part would be that I've always been interested in history, and I enjoy the pageantry of good looking troops and terrain. After all, it would be a lot faster, easier and cheaper to buy a boardgame and play with cardboard counters. It can't possibly be the competition, since my win:loss ratio is about 1:10. Comaraderie is another big chunk, a lot of times I have just as much fun sitting around and cracking jokes instead of gaming. And yes, the vast majority of my friends are gamers.

its fun all be it some times with a hint of Masochism perhaps & all my proper friends game. Its not competitiveness as I only ever do fantasy tournaments & Magic but all of the above where the point is the taking part no the winning which is good as I seldom come better than the middle of the table.

I grew out of tournament "historical" wargaming years & years ago.
