I am a bit worried from reading all these strategy posts from experienced players that if I learn, early on, from pros, I will lose out on the kind of ‘trial by fire’ learning that might be more fun. I could likely rustle up a player or two on my own who, like me, have never played. Perhaps this is my best bet at this stage. I am just worried that if I start off by learning all the ‘common wisdom’ and ‘no-brainer’ openings that I will take some of the fun out of it. If I learn from experienced players now, I might not be able to entice my (new player) friends to ever play me?
Looking for serious A&A players who are willing to play 1v1 or possibly 2v2 in the Los Angeles area. I’m available to play any day of the week. If you are willing to commit, PM me and we’ll discus a rendezvous point. BTW I’m in Paramount, Ca. 😄
I suppose I was trying to convince myself I could make the trip . We used to live (20 years ago ) in Woking and my nan and aunt lived in Ashford and Laleham. I know the area well and use to drive from Hereford twice a month visiting after we moved West.
London, is another matter!
My son (aka Sgt. Pavlov) have loved playing A&A for a few years now. We started playing in the forums on here since he went to college. Maybe we can set up a day game when he gets home for the summer sometime near the end of April/first part of May. We live near the St. Joe area.
