I feel a push towards smaller, simpler games even though my “favourite” period is Horse & Musket with its large armies etc. How do others feel about this? Are there any other insights into the set-up/pull down process?
I felt similar to you in the 90s when I did not have a permanent table.
Yeah, sure. rub it in.
I must admit to being very careful with my figures & terrain so very few breakages. However, when I get a wargames’ room (quite soon, I think), the sheer joy of setting up & leaving games for days & weeks will be considerable.
