Looking back at some of the games I was interested (and invested) in over time that never really took of for me, I realize that part of the blame lies in the interests of the gaming groups I have been a part of.

Specifically, there were games that I was really hot on, but no one in any of the groups I was in was interested enough to buy in. So, it was up to me to buy several factions, paint them, and teach people to play. Often, with mixed results.

So, I was wondering if others have experienced the same fate, and how you dealt with it?

For example, I was a big fan of the GRW, but no one else seemed to like it. I still have a couple hundred figures painted up, and have only used them in a couple of games. The only time I really got to "play" the game was when I ran demos at GenCon and Origins for PEG.

There are other examples (Warhammer, WFRP, Deadlands, Chainmail, etc.), but you get the point...
