A wargamer treasures nothing more than playing great board games with fellow enthusiasts and friends. The great community that surrounds wargaming is definitely a way to connect people with common interests and potentially build long-lasting groups. You can play any type of war game, whether its WW2, civil war, epic medieval clashes, space battles, fantasy settings, and more.
A number of series and titles exist, some of them a household name even in non-wargaming circles. These include Warhammer 40k, X-Wing, and Warmachine games. There are also space games based on the Star Trek and Star Wars settings.
