I actually have four games from this particular stable, but had never played any of them.
I set up the board, admired the pieces, consulted a few sources to work out the historical troop movements, and started to play.
Well, to cut a long story short, I got through four activations and then packed it all in. The interest wasn't there.
And this is what happens all the time when I set up a board game.
I don't quite know why it is, but playing board wargames against myself is just not all that much fun. It's not a nice thing to admit given the contents of my game room, but there it is. There are exceptions, but basically, the action doesn't seem important and it's not enjoyable.
I love board games against other people, and I enjoy games over VASSAL, but repeated experiments have shown that no matter how interested I am in a topic, there is hardly a game in my collection that two or three nights set up on the hobby table with only myself for company will not make me want to put away.
One always lives in hope that next time it will be different, or that an enthusiast will move in just down the road, but the become excited, set up, leave a couple of days, take down pattern has become so ingrained it's almost Pavlovian.
With a big and expensive move coming up later this year I suspect I'm going to have to do some thinking about whether all of these games are really worth hanging onto or not.
On the plus side, there's no such problem with my miniatures collection!
