MeG USA / Re: why is the US slow to adopt MeG?

Ouch.  Sounds painful physically and psychologically - I'm sorry to hear that.  I hope you are able to get some of that behind you, and soon.

I played in one of the tournaments at Hcon last year.  I'd like to play in one this year.  But again, I have to borrow lead to play 15s.

And, well, Hcon isn't really close to Chicago....

I have two ideas about this, maybe three....

- ADLG is a very popular tournament set and the guys around here, if they are going to play in a tournament, want to see a lot of players.  We've done some local tournaments (in Chicago) of ADLG and when it's "just us" and it isn't that motivating.  So, if going to the East Coast, they want to be playing what the cool kids are playing
- MeG requires a lot of figures.  That was kind of a discouragement when we did FoG.  It was a lot of work (and money) to put together an army.  We only do 28s here, so that emphasizes this a bit.  This is not a disadvantage at all in my eyes - i like big games with lots of figs - but I think I'm unique in this.
- I've put on a couple of games here and people have liked it, but think of it more as a "big game" kind of rules set, rather than something you put on easily on a Friday night.  Playing more of it might change that perception, I don't know.

Anyone here in Chicago interested in trying out MeG?  I posted on the old forum and didn't get any response.  I just realized (ahem) there is a new forum now so thought I'd try again.

I would like to make it to Historicon, but I can't be certain for awhile.  I will borrow a 15mm army to play again if that's all that's on offer.
