Thoughts on depression and anxiety

Hi, Adam here, I run this little podcast and I wanted to talk a bit about my own experience with mental illness and gaming. I hope to maybe find other people that experience the same things and to maybe learn some coping mechanisms.

I suffer from depression and anxiety. This is often a one-two punch that keeps me from living my life to the fullest. It greatly affects my socialization and by extension my gaming.

Interested?

Ran into a couple of guys in my FLGS store today and talked about playing some non-GW things. I thought I would list them out here, if anyone else might be interested.  Its easier to link a blog post, rather than post a bunch of links in Facebook.

  1. Flames of War  

I REALLY dig this game. It has probably been my favorite to play out of everything I have ever played. It is 15mm WWII that plays on a 4X6 table with a lot of terrain. I really like the rules and the combined arms aspect of it. If someone wanted to try and get it going in the area I would dedicate myself to a weekly game.

2. Team Yankee

Basically the cold war version of Flames of War. Emphasis is more on Tanks, helicopters and jets. I have actually bought in, with a French force for Free Nations. 

3. L’Art de la Guerre

I am more attracted to this because of its competitive scene. It is a detailed ruleset and the worldwide competition is fierce. I have 2 armies for this and would love to play it regularly. I even bought a mat for it.

4. Bolt Action

Have a few people with rules and armies in the area but we haven’t got together to play. I’d love to play and collect 28mm WWII. I also the like the turn/dice mechanic.  Myself have a large, painted Russian force.

That is all I talked about in the shop today. Remember Malifaux is getting off the ground locally, and all the other rulebooks/armies I own are for another post.
