Roll20 is a deal-breaker for me. Pick a different virtual tabletop and I might play.

Your proposed game didn't hook me in. Come up with a better campaign description/background and I might play.

Your proposed house rules are a deal-breaker. Fix those and I might play.

It's personal. You suck, Buttmonkey. I'd rather lend money to Ken Whitman than play in a game run by you.

I don't know whether you suck, but I'm not going to play since I don't know you.

I'm not willing to invest the time because you ended your Castle Zagyg campaign abruptly a few years ago.

I'm not interested in a C&C game on Saturday mornings, but I'd possibly be interested in a different game on Saturday mornings.

Wait. What? I didn't realize you are interested in running a Saturday morning game. I'm interested in playing.

Poll: Why you aren't interested in a Saturday morning game

Post by Buttmonkey »

So, it looks like there isn't much interest in my proposed Saturday morning game. Fair enough. I'm curious what drives the lack of interest. Hence, the poll. The results will help me decide whether to retool the proposal or abandon a Saturday morning game altogether. Please let me know why you aren't interested in a Saturday morning game run by the Buttmonkey...

I am not a morning person. I sleep in until noon or later on Saturdays. Sundays too. Of course, the fact that I am often awake until 2, 3 or even 5 AM contributes to my not being a morning person. Being a 100% Disabled Vet is not all fun and games, after all.

Edit: Plus I am already in 5+ games per week, and I like staying married.

I usually sleep in on Saturday.

Also I play in a Saturday night game.

I'd do Saturday morns, but alas, I have a young daughter, so no dice for me at that time.

I generally am at work at 5am until noonish on the weekends. Til evening during the week. And then the single dad thing in between.

I was/am interested . . but the start time is too early for me. Plus I sometimes work on Saturday mornings, so I was hesitant to commit.

I think you would run a great game and so I wanted to join if I could.

Perhaps a later start time and if it didn't mess the game up too much, I would play with the group knowing that I might have to miss a session if I'm at work (this is an issue with night games as well).

Hope that helps.

Saturdays are usually my one day off a week, so I try to sleep in some and then spend the rest of my Saturday doing chores and such that I don't have time to do through the week. But then play season effes that up and my next day off will most likely be in May.

I'd like to play in more games, and I'd certainly play in yours, but I can barely manage the ones I am in during this crunch time at work, stretched too thin right now. I like the idea of a Saturday morning game too; reminds me of when I was a kid and could play RPGs all day.

Rgr that, my job is turning into a meat grinder and I'm exhausted and mentally drained by the time I get home. Then I have to do all the home things in the evening . By Saturday I'm tanked ... and then :

Heck mine have games in different towns now that the older one is in a 'traveling team' age bracket. Plus, after getting out of the military, I swore I'd never miss any of their games unless there was no way around it. - Glad I'm sticking to it because I've see just how much heart my little ones have despite being only 9 and 7 1/2. Even when their team is short manned and they are having to play the whole game with no break, they run as hard as the can, make great plays, and don't get mad when their team mates drag their feet and blow the play they set up for their team, .... Heck, the are showing signs of being a better person than I am at almost 45 years old! So, I'll gladly miss a chance to game to watch them play soccer Saturdays.

Busy working on numerous start up KOTC projects otherwise I'd love to sit in on a game you CK. Hope to see you running a table or three at Gary Con next year. I know you had some time off, but I've read your post-game journals and am confident you'd show players a good time. And, hey, after a long day of gaming, be happy to buy the first round. :D
