I most assuredly, prefer a board game wargame over anything digital.
I don't always get what I want. Actually, I rarely get what I want :)
I've clung on to the idea "I'll play them, eventually."
Lies suck, especially when they are lies we tell ourselves :)
I've got some great board game wargames. What I don't have is the space. If life is good to me, heck I'm going to have even less space. Ideally, I dream of a tiny home (the mobile ones). That does NOT spell large amounts of space hehe.
I think I'm going to have to do the ole rip off the bandaid thing here, quickly, and get it over with.
Get rid of the board games.
Let's face it, I bought 4 wargames today on the D-Day sale, and not one of them needs shelf space :)
And they play as nice as a board game, minus the large table eating map, and counters that take effort to set up.
Treated myself to ...
Battle of the Bulge
Drive on Moscow War in the Snow
Kursk – Battle at Prochorovka
Three nice little titles all costing me like 25 bucks because of the sale.
Grabbed TOAW IV because well, I wanted it.
Downloaded the Order of Battle base file, might treat myself to one of the DLC items or 2.
The fact is, computer wargames are 'convenient'. It's NOT the same as a board game. I'm also a book snob. I I prefer hardcovers. I don't read my books on a doodad. But in the case of wargames, well, it's a fight I have been waging, totally unsuccessfully.
The shelf space being eaten by my board game collection is being coveted by my models lately :)
Wargame, 05% of the time.
Play with Barbies 05% of the time.
Play with Legos 10% of the time.
Build models 20% of the time
Shopping 60% of the time.
Exlains why I buy em more than I play em.
