Re: The Graying of the Hobby Or... Flogging a Very Old Horse

I've been collecting and playing historicals since I was 18. Still found time when the kids were little, to still play once a month. This was before internet, so play by mail campaigns were the way to go. Communication with friends all over the country and overseas was by USPS . It's a tad easier now.
By the way, the hobby was graying in the Seventies, and not going to survive. History does not go away.

Watched Little Wars TV's video about whether or not historical gaming is dying out, and while there were good points made, I don't see it. It's an expensive, and time intensive hobby that is best suited for folks middle aged and older. Though I was a semi-active club member in my late 20's, attending the odd game here and there, I was never able to devote the time I seem to have now in my late 30's to painting, terrain building, and gaming fairly regularly. In fact, because there was always a financial obligation or saving for a big purchase (like a home) going on in my 20's, paired with young children all over the house, I barely picked up a brush for almost a decade.
