I live in Arkansas, precise location not to be revealed at this time.

I notice a lot of SDE talk in the UK, and there doesn't really seem to be any sort of Ninja Division following, specifically SDE in my area. Anyway people in Arkansas could sound off, and maybe we could work something out?

Does anyone have any experience playing through Roll20, or anything? I just want to play, and my town is rather small, so I'm having a hard time getting it off the ground around here.

Thank you for your time! Have a nice day.

I'd play with you, but I am in Ohio. I have found that places that sell/play board games are a good way to get exposure. I have a Barnes and Nobles that has a board game night. I introduced a bunch of people into the game that way. Good luck!

I just live in a small town, so I was looking for people that were within reasonable distances, (like, maybe 2 hours) to get together with every so often.

I am planning to go to a local convention in March and have some SDE demos, and try to generate the interest. Thanks for the reply! I had a good group to play with when I lived in Utah, but I had to move, because my father's health.

I'll go to my local Books-a-million, and see if they do anything, though. That is a good idea. Our one game store in this town is really lame, and whenever I take SDE up there, everyone is always busy playing something else, or not interested in giving it some time.

I'm optimistic. Things can only go up!!

I know how you feel. My small town doesn't even have a game store. The one in the next town over doesn't carry SDE and they only play Warhammer there. The gamers there are pretty close minded about playing anything with Chibi minis (they think chibis are for girls and little kids). The closest gaming conventions ever come to me are about a four hour drive. I try to play with my wife and kids. My wife is a very busy school teacher (most days I don't see her until about supper time and then after supper she grades her students papers), and the game is too long for my young kids. I can play arcade by myself, but it would be much more fun with others.

Don't give up. It may take some time, but I am sure if you keep trying that eventually you will find other gamers that will love the game and the minis. The convention will probably be your best bet as it will pull in people from a larger area. Good luck.

I a pretty sure that the guy who runs the SDE Discord server is from Arkansas. Check him out on the general discussion page.

This made me laugh. In my area its not too different. Until they see a 6'3, 325lb, tattoo covered ufc fighter looking dude sitting there setting up SDE, with all of his hand painted chibi minis on display offering people to play.

I don't understand that mentality, if its fun and makes you happy, do it. If it's not hurting you or anyone else, have fun!

I don't understand where that type of mentality comes from. Where I live if it isn't Magic or Warhammer people don't want to play it. Personally I think the Chibi minis require more skill to paint than most Warhammer minis. I played Warhammer for a few years so I can honestly say this. I think SDE is a fun game that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. My closest game store owners have the same mentality as most of the people that go there. People need to open their minds and realize that a game with cute minis can be a fun and deep game that requires teamwork and strategy. If I could make some SDE cards for some of the raiders from Rail Raiders then I might be able to entice people to play. Who wouldn't want to play with Bobba Fett or one of their favorite anime characters.

You know what I've always found interesting is how inaccessible Warhammer is. The lore is literally what defined grim dark and yet trying to pick up a book from the black library without prior knowledge can leave you reeling from the terminology. The miniatures are expensive, you have to cut and assemble them yourself, and then you have to put teams together in a way that makes strategic sense for the complicated ruleset. It's not kind to newcomers and it's not kind to women (every time I go into my local store it's full of men, and while the store owner and occupants are nice to me, it's really clear they think I have no idea what I'm doing). Yet because it's the prevailing tabletop game around here, more and more men join that community all the time.

On the other hand, Super Dungeon does its best to be accessible without compromising gameplay. While you'll still sink your teeth in for a few hours per game, it feels light and colorful and just... Pleasant. You can pick up a fully assembled mini, claim it as your character, and delve right into a dungeon. It's exactly what I had always wanted but could never find. Now I show it to basically everyone I can find. But some part of me is still embarrassed to be seen with it in the company of "serious gamers", even though I enjoy it much more than murdalizing marines with my tyranids.

I played Warhammer a few years back, but it was just too expensive. Plus it just didn't fill that dungeon crawl void I was feeling. SDE is nice because you get that dungeon crawl experience without having it be too complicated or too expensive. It is a fun game that has strategy, but not too complicated. I have a good size collection of SDE now, but it was done a little at a time. Warhammer and Magic (I admit I am a casual Magic player, but not one of the fanatics) are the most popular games around where I live. It is such a shame that games such as this one aren't given a fair chance.
