Why - why do we do it? Serious question.


Because we can?

Because it's nice to buy things we couldn't previously?

Because we like to have options?

Because we have an uncontrollable problem akin to heroin addiction and get the itchy-itchies when we go without buying a new game for a week (your mileage may vary) or so?

*we*

I know I was being totally irrational  :D

I just thought - get used to a system - and enjoy that system - and then buy another game to learn a new system.

I've probably played no more than 2 scenarios of most of the games I have...only Phantom Leader and Combat! stick in my mind as having had more table time. I've been reading the rules for Front Toward Enemy for the last week or so - and now I've got it to the table, I'm already looking forward to learning and playing both The Last Hundred Yards and Old School Tactical.

But on the other hand, I'm really wanting to go back to Combat!, LnL WaW 85, LnL Tactical. Hell Day of Heroes hasn't even had the rules read yet.

I just wish I could say no more and play the very, very good games I already have.

Alas - it seems I'm not that strong.

And it is such a good game. I'm really looking forward to going back to it - and whilst I love new games,  they get in the way of classics.

That's why I can't understand why I buy alot of games. I have some crackers

Combat!
World at War '85
LnL Tactical - several editions...Vietnam, WWII, Day of Heroes, Falklands
Company of Heroes
Phantom Leader

and yet - it's just not enough. Why do we behave like this? I like those systems I have. I don't really think they're lacking anything or that I'm gaining anything else (apart from a new procedures with new rules and new components) by getting new games. It's not like the new games I get are going to enhance my gaming much more than I already have with my current selection.

Why - why do we do it? Serious question.

I've pretty much got a decent mix of games that I'm very happy with and anything else I'm looking at (for example Front Toward Enemy, The Last Hundred Yards and Old School Tactical) will provide different components, a different sequence of play, different tangible qualities and different mechanics (albeit - sometimes very limited in difference).

In fact furnishing myself with other games simply reduces the quality of the games I already have - and almost very superficially.

Because we're all hopeless degenerates.  ;D

Since it's a long weekend, would anyone be interested in a TTS game.  I've not had time to sit down to learn so either we'll be learning together or someone to beat the rules into me :)

Yes,  I have the whole kickstarter set.

Morning? What time zone you in? I’m usually up early even on weekends. But Monday is supposed to rain most of the day so any time would work. No real plans for the day.
