A Dilemma For A Casual Gamer
I would consider myself a casual gamer. This is mostly because I just have never really had a big opportunity to participate in games. Growing up, I lived in a neighborhood that did not have a lot of kids. This meant that any games that I wanted to play, Monopoly, Checkers, even card games like Go Fish were usually with my parents (mostly my mom) or a special occasion.
This situation did not get much better as I grew up.
And, sadly, still persists to this day. Now, my biggest issue is that most of the people I know are from work. Nearly all of them do not share my enthusiasm to spend a couple of hours playing a board game, and certainly not the ones that I would want to play.
I have begun to look for other casual gamers through Meetup.com, but once again, work becomes an issue. I work nights and have an odd work week, which means while many groups are meeting on Friday nights and Saturdays to have a little fun, I’m at work. And when I’m off, they are at work.
It doesn’t help that thanks to TableTop on Youtube, I’ve seen how a lot of these games play and want to play them that much more.
Somehow I will have to work this out… after November, that’s National Novel Writing Month time.
