H8, Zot, can someone explain to me the history of this site? Why do we have 123 members? What's the relationship between this site and syracuse gamers?

That's a good question that would take a long time to answer completely.

The short story is, it was a nickname for a group of my friends, which then expanded to be our local gaming group. A lot of people have moved away or drifted off over the years, which is why there are so many inactive members and old, unused junk.

The Syracuse Gamers are sort of another "clique" that grew out of Altered States. We weren't always really friends with them, partly because they focus more on tourney style stuff whereas we like more casual games, and partly because we really were separate groups years ago. We used to be more like them (lots of 20-something guys) and they used to be more like you (the young newbies). Although, they were more like the annoying, cheesy scrubs than just the younger guys.

As I said, a lot of our guys have moved on, and a lot of them have grown up some (in more ways than one), and so we're more friendly than we used to be, but they still stay kinda separated. They have their own thing, and I don't try to force them into ours.

Hope that helps some.

- H8

Alright, thanks. I always wondered why there were two 40k websites for syracuse, but now I get it. I was jsut curious because Kevin wants to expand the SG website into CCgs and stuff (eew).

Heh, It's funny picturing those guys as kids.

well, we enjoy helping you old folks out, and in turn we learn a little.

Bah! These 'Syracuse Gamer' scum should submit to the wisdom of FB. They should join forces! Join us! We're the Dark Side! Is this page not darker in color?!

it is better looking. You may well end up with more people using FB for stuff if SG starts covering Magic players and other stuff and drives away the 40k playing filth.

Why can't we open up a Yu-gi-oh board here? I nominate Maguni as the moderator.

Magic and its ilk are crack. Stay as far away from them as you can.

A Pokemon deck upside the head hurts more. I think I might have one buried around here to use. Right next to the Magic deck, the Vampire deck, the Star Wars Decks, the Brawl Decks, and even a few 40K decks.

That's right. I have enough to bring you down. Even though I kicked the 'collectible' habit, I'm still armed.
