Having just finished a long-running educational commitment, I had been looking forward to resuming gaming with gusto at the beginning of September, getting the next battle of my Gallic War campaign fought and bringing some of my new toys to the table. Life has not worked out like that! The demands of my growing family for space have meant that I am again without a viable gaming space currently, until I can swap things around sufficiently to make one. I may end up back in the garage, although it is pretty much a storeroom currently and does get pretty chilly in winter. I can start playing on the kitchen table, although that never really works as well as it might: my house is just too busy a place and crucially there is nowhere to store my toys close to it. Storage space generally is becoming tight, even for my primarily 6mm-focused collection. So what to do?
One possibility would be to concentrate on a few low model-count and low terrain-count games. Another would be to concentrate on playing boardgames more and leaving miniatures games for my rare face-to-face encounters. Both these courses of action might imply big changes to my gaming plans and although I do like smaller games and boardgames, I do like to play the bigger actions in a wide variety of periods too. But my home gaming seems to be hitting some kind of physical limits at the moment, and I am not quite sure how to overcome them. Wish me luck!
