I have to agree with Parzival; there are a lot of eras I enjoy reading about as a history buff, but that I just can't justify building armies for. However, if there's a game at the FLGS, well, then!

POLL DESCRIPTION

dayglowill asks...

So do you have a subject that really interests you, that you could game, but don't really want to? Either one that you would not game, or one where the usual wargamers caveat of "only if someone else set it all up" applies.

For me, it's Colonial. I enjoy reading about the subject, Thomas Pakenham is one of my favourite authors, I watch Zulu every couple of years or so, but as the subject matter for a game, no.

I've included some fictional genres as well, as I'm sure there must be people who are big fans of Star Wars or Tolkien but have no desire to game them.
