Hello everyone,

I made a YouTube video discussing and advising on how to host Axis & Allies games and find players, I hope you find it helpful.

Nice video! I've had no luck at all getting strangers to try the game. Once I mailed out about 30 flyers around my neighborhood and got no takers at all. The only way I've gotten people to try it is with people who knew me already and trusted in me that it would be fun.

Establishing contact is one thing - then there are other considerations, like are they drinkers/smokers/stuck on one version of the game/etc. I think you covered those things pretty well on the video.

I like your idea of hosting a game with all new players the best - people seem to join in a group easier if they all come in on the same level, instead of one new guy trying to break in and fit with three old vets. The new guy will usually feel like an outsider in that scenario, and won't stick.

Thanks DK, I forgot to mention the over bearing drunks mainly because I've never been confronted with that issue (yet), but I guess "undesirables" can include all kinds of problem people. I've always liked your passion for the game... even more so knowing that you handed out flyers like that (lol).

Cheers.
