Just signed up, having found the site while looking for details on Triple Helix Wargames. Seems like it is all happening in the local area after all.
I live in Trowbridge, have played WH40K since Rogue Trader and Warhammer since 3rd Edition. Got a whole bunch of other games from Blood Bowl to Talisman via Tikal and Settlers of Catan. Also play Vampire: The Eternal Struggle on a regular basis - well as regular as I can with a 15 month old son.
Will have to get back to painting figures one day, just about manage to cut and stick stuff together these days.
I have played 2nd Ed way back, but I own all of the new 4th Ed - The Highland has just arrived!
Settlers of Catan is very good, although it can suffer in comparison with newer games that have built on its original ideas. It is an easy game to play, and available in various ways these days - Xbox Live I think?
