MrsWargamer -> Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/14/2019 6:50:28 PM)

Here I am, Monday, a holiday here, nothing much open and possible.

I want to offer a sincere thank you, to the membership (you old coots that is).

I've been treated well (I'll confess, I had my worries).
Heck, one of you lot even bought me a wargame, just because I asked. That says a lot about you blokes. And it's all good.

I boldly offered a few pics of myself, and you guys were gentlemen.

I'm pleased that you have exceeded my expectations. I was unsure I was going to be treated decently, and my misgivings were all wrong.

I haven't always been given a nice reception in the manly world of wargaming, but Matrix Games has managed to defy the norm.

I have sought out other locations, and thus far, I also can say I like Grogheads and Dogs of War forums. But I rarely have much of anything to say there.

This is one of my favourite places to check in on. When not shopping for Barbies and Legos :)

In the big scheme of things it's too bad us wargamer types can't get together at something like a convention for a weekend of games and tournaments. Considering we live all over the world I realize it's impossible. But it would be fun.

Used to go to the game conventions twice a year close to LAX, they were great fun.
Boards games - D&D with miniatures - Warhammer - Military ships, planes and tank miniatures, some sci-fi too. Ted & I stuck to hexmap style wargames.

Thank you, MrsWargamer. You brighten this forum with your presence.

Thank you. [&o] [:)]

In general most war gamers (board and digital) are a nice bunch, I know I have been gifted with things from time to time or sold an old classic in the 1970s rate and not the modern rate by great fellows and I have tried to pay it forward as well.

The one sad thing is some of the greats have pass on before us, Charles S.Roberts, Redmon Simonson, Don Greenwood, Bill “fish” O’Conner, Winston Hamilton, and Richard H. Berg just to name a few of the more popular ones and the countless unsung players whom we have lost.

Glad to have you here Mrs Wargammer.

What’s your real name? Mine is Don, you have earned a place here.

I go by my middle name. It's Bunny. Yes, my middle name really is Bunny.

Bunny is a nice village. Not too far away from me.

goodwoodrw -> RE: Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/14/2019 11:08:13 PM)

You're not the first person I known with that name. I had an elder cousin who had a given name of Olivia, but was given the nick name of Bunny. It was the only name her family used, of course her (insert) Mother was the exception to that rule[:)]




Zovs -> RE: Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/14/2019 11:22:01 PM)

I think I know of three female war gamers, Denny, Cara and now Bunny. That is over a 40 year period. Two of them either play ASL or ASLSK.




MrsWargamer -> RE: Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/15/2019 5:50:22 AM)

Interesting, I'm quite big on ASL. Never had the purple box though.




Zovs -> RE: Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/15/2019 7:29:26 AM)

Denny and her husband are big time war gamers in Germany, he introduced her to ASL via the SK series, but they both play a lot of board war games. If I remember correctly Cara played miniatures and some strategic war games.

@ zakblood - and I thought you from somewhere in USA.

My parents lived in Castle Bytham near Grantham but I was brought up in south west London where I played wargames in the late 1960s with a Polish wargamer called Bish Iwaszko who was inventor of some WW2 rules played on the London wargame scene.

I found this remnant about it:

wodin -> RE: Thanks guys (that would be you) :) (10/16/2019 10:15:44 AM)

I think you're very brave.

I too am proud to be part of this forum esp seeing the response to your thread.
