Default How far will you go for a game?

I walked about 3 1/2 miles today to play a game of 40k. Now, this might not sound so bad, but I'm overweight(and not afraid to say it) and I ended up losing anyway. But, hey, it was fun.

every third week me and one of my friends drive about an hour to play at the closest game store. we have a table and scenery at his house, but sometimes you just want to play on different terrain. also we can occasionally get games against others instead of always facing each other.

Just 3.5mi away? Good exercise, be proud! ;D


For a SINGLE game it'd probably be 15~30mins out by whatever transportation I've got. Since that's usually a vehicle that gives me some leeway but I'm more time than distance-oriented (it's said that all Computer Science majors are masters of space and time...and it's true, we just tend to bias to one or the other).


For multiple games, I'd probably drive an hour out. I mean, why not? If I'm going to be gaming for an entire day, what's two hours for round trip time?

I play games down at the metron, so that's about an hour on foot and BART.

Let's see, I tend to play my games in 1 of 2 locations.
Kitchen table, 1 set of stairs and a couple of rooms from where my army is stored.
or
Quick 10 minute 4.9 mile drive to the Hobby store I play at.

I once went to the nearest games workshop store, a 40 minute trip, 21.9 mile drive, but ended up leaving slightly disgusted by the people there after a very short period of time and have never been back.

As to how far I'd go for a game it really would depend on the game, what it offers, and why I'd want to play in it. I could conceive of flying to a game in another country if ithe reward/benefit was really worth it.

I have a store a mere 15 minutes from my house, although the player pool is a bit small.

Over 3 miles, good walk. I doubt I would do that, but then again I have flat feet.

The nearest RT is about a 3 minute car ride, and the nearest GW is about an hour.

Well, I was planning on flying from Okinawa, Japan to Maryland, USA for a weekend of gaming, but work is going to stop me from doing that.
