I was a regular member of a Club a while ago but these days I just don't know how to get a game. I turn up, chat with a few people and watch a game or two and then go home and do my own thing. I think other people are so wrapped up in playing with their circle of friends that they don't have time to include outsiders. If you do get invited then would be the problem of having a painted Army and knowing the rules.
Thats why I normally stick to one off Demo type games.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP muses:

Groucho said it best: "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member." I'm one of these invisible gamers: we operate out of our own homes and generally eschew any notion of a club. Why haven't I ever joined a club? Several reasons, not least is that meeting times never suited my career or family commitments. If you've never been a member of a wargaming club, why not?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
