Your Year of Frugal Gaming

The main thing about my Year of Frugal Gaming is that it's soon coming to an end, of course this means that at the end of December I'll be returning to my normal non-Frugal ways (well, maybe, more of that in the next couple of weeks). To keep the Frugal dream alive, I'm now looking for other gamers to take up the challenge and try their own Year of Frugal Gaming.

If you currently live the life of a Frugal Gamer, or fancy having a year where you attempt to spend less and game more, then I'd like you to get in touch with me and I'll give you permission to post on this very blog!

I'm looking for all types of contributions, terrain, modelling, painting and money saving tips, frugal reviews, or even just updates on your thoughts as you live twelve months as a Frugal Gamer. You may have noticed that I like to put a lot of photos in the blog as well, so I hope you'll be able to do the same.
As well as the infinite kudos for being on this high profile blog (ahem), at the end of next year (2010) I will even dish out some prizes for the best posts, plus prizes for random contributors as well, so there's every reason to take part.

You don't have to be a great writer, you don't have to have had a blog before, all I ask is that you're passionate about wargaming, boardgaming, card games, modelling or painting. I'll make any minor changes or edits to your posts as necessary!

If you fancy trying your own Year of Frugal Gaming email me.

I've been getting back into Gorkamorka recently and so I've been trying to work out the best ways to do it cheaply.

Currently our campaign has three participants so there's not many of us. What I'm currently working on is cheap and fast terrain.

I'm hoping the hill I'm working on will look good, I'll create a blog entry about it when it's done and perhaps send it to you, if you'd like.

Hiya FK, I'll add you permission to the blog in the new year, then you'll be able to post to your heart's content.

I'd love to see some Gorkamorka photos on the blog!

Awesome notion, that.

I'd be up for cross-posting some tips and fiddles: figures pulling double duty, alternative manufacturers, interlocking connections, maybe something about terrain...

By the way, I seem to have an Orc chariot and a wound marker I neglected to surrender to you. Heavens know why. They're yours if you want them.
