As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am attempting to start a gaming group with some coworkers. Eight expressed initial interest, and four actually came to the first event, which I hosted in my kitchen last night.
Due to player demand, we didn't begin with an RPG; but instead tried Axis and Allies Miniatures. The whole session consisted of a practice run with tank-only squads. By the night's end, I got an impression that the event was mildly successful -- at least enough to warrant a second event.
We'll probably try A&AM again next time, and perhaps throw a card game into the mix (I've been itching to play some Chez Geek). Perhaps by the third night, we'll get our C&C on. Stay tuned.
