My dirty little secret of gaming
There are a lot of games on the market, many of which I've owned and played. There are also many that I've owned and never played. For the most part, this is because the game seemed neat, but either wasn't really my style, or I just couldn't find enough people to play it. But there are a couple of games out there that I have owned, never played, am pretty certain I never will play, but every so often I com back to them to re-read them and wish that I played them. It's no secret that I'm a huge miniatures fan, so perhaps it makes sense that my dirty little secret would be Games Workshops Warhammer Fantasy Battles and Warhammer 40K. I own the rules, I own enough miniatures to field three armies, one 40K army and two Fantasy Battles armies in various stages of assembly. So I am a closet Warhammer fan, I've watched the game being played and it seems like it would be fun, but I'm not sure that it would really be my thing to play. Building the miniatures and setting up the terrain though? I'm all over that! So, does anyone else have a dirty little secret of gaming? Something that they wished they played but for some reason just don't?
