How are there NO Armada players in...

Recommended Posts

Right!?  I am moving in a few weeks and will have a nice big dedicated wargames room with several tables, but hell, just about nobody to game with!

 

How is that even possible?  SO many people, and nobody.  I look at the dedicated forum and there are like huge groups in, like, Nashville and North Dakota and all of that.

Weird, Portland OR has a large gamer scene with lots of LGS's (We have more of an issue deciding which one to play at along with finding a night that is not too busy.) and one of the largest game stores I have seen. (With Beer on Tap too!) I would have figured NY would have had us beat.

Sorry to hear that man.

it really suprises me too. I moved to NYC from Maryland last summer and I'm shocked there's hardly any local game stores or groups in such a big city compared to the town I used to live. From what I could find the only game store that seems to have much going on with miniatures is the Compleat Strategist in Manhattan. I'm not sure if it's a place you can just go to for a game though, besides tournaments. I did see they've done some X-Wing stuff, and even hosted a couple tournaments which they posted to youtube. Hopefully they pick up Armada as well.

 

Outside of that place, I haven't really seen anything that looks promising.

There's already a thriving Armada community in New York!

Games are being held at The Compleat Strategist, Nu Brand Gaming, and the Brooklyn Strategist! Casuals are being organized on the Facebook group! 

 

Come join us! You've despaired far too early!

Hmmm to guess who you are. I would say you have an order in at Guardian that is about as large as my own ;-)

I have a good amount coming and I am on the Armada Facebook and guessing who I am is easy when you know my last name. Hint, it is on the forums here. ;)

We can test out your 3 VSD idea sometime.

You know.. Moving back to Minneapolis ain't so bad now that I think about it. Hello FFG game center :P I feel your pain though. Was living in northern NH where there were only 6 other gamers who didn't play magic exclusively.

Will have to be after Wave 1 but by then I think the idea will be mitigated unless I can borrow one more VSD for that match.

I think it's more that we don't have any large game stores. It's super frustrating though!

You can thank all the people who buy from online retailers for that...

Certainly doesn't help, but I think the real issue is the overhead associated with maintaining a storefront in manhattan.
