1. We haven't gotten around to making our symptoms Topic A of conversation, YET, so there's still some life in us yet.

15 years in the OFM's basement!?!?!?

We have our rituals.
Chili. Or pulled pork sandwiches.
Me singing, briefly, off key. It might even be wargames related.

All of the above except #4. No objection to #4; it's just never happened.

To enjoy a game, I need good people (positive attitude, happy to learn and teach, wanting everyone to have a good time) and adequate space (large enough, warm enough, quiet enough, ventilated enough). I've found those in many different contexts.

And another – a revolving group of people have been hiring the village hall for the last 5 years, and on Saturday I'm going for the first time as someone NOT organising, and I know there are different people going.

6. The same group of gents, rotating among each's basement/kitchen table.
7. The same as 6., with occasional invited guest, aka "fresh meat."

So mostly the same group, but not the same place, though typically the same places.

3 has also been good to me in the past.
