I play mostly historical games and some board games (also usually historical). I am new to the state and the area and have yet to see more than one person willing to break out some minis and roll some dice. Thanks!

Some of the this you may know, so I apologize.

There is a very large gaming community in St. Louis. Big Muddy is an umbrella organization for historical miniatures, and there are a few guys who really put in effort to keep up information and such--there is a Facebook group you should join to get updates. The Fantasy Shop in St. Charles and GameNite in Webster Groves are two very active hubs of all sorts of gaming: board games, rpgs, cards, miniatures. There are several other game stores in the area also, plus one on the Illinois side of the river that is very busy. There are several gaming conventions put on in the area as well--keeping in mind that St. Louis in Missouri and the southern Illinois suburbs consider themselves one large metro area and run games together.

There is also an active gaming community in central Missouri revolving around Columbia and Jefferson City. I don't know much about them, but there are quite a few gamers floating around. I THINK Valhallas Games in Columbia is worth checking out and asking around.

Hermann is just far enough out from St Louis as to make it difficult for you. Good luck finding players there (seriously, I wouldn't half-mind moving out there in a decade or so).

For the St Louis area, Diecon is an annual local convention just East of the city and is happening this weekend, keep it in mind for next year. The historical guys also put on a small con in the fall called CommandCon (iirc).

Big Muddy generally meets the third Sunday of every month at Game Nite, see the Facebook page for more details if you're interested in driving out that far.

Good luck.

Thanks a bunch guys! St Louis is a tough haul to travel often, but I'll definitely be sniffing around there on occasion. I may try to contact the Columbia group, though. It's still far, but a bit closer than St Louis. Trying to make a convert or two in the area, as well! I assume you guys are from the St Louis area?

co1191, click on the name of the poster and you may get a better idea of where they are. some folks post a generic location, others a bit more specific.

Yep, St. Louis. There are about a good half-dozen St. Louisans on this site that I know of, plus several from KC. They have a pretty decent gaming scene over there as well.

By all means check out the Big Muddy Facebook page. There are some photos from the recent DieCon 17 convention and I am sure you will find some information on their other events coming up.
