Thanks Matt. I just have to find some people to play the game with. So I can learn it. I am slowly painting up some models.

I take it that you may be from Alberta Shadowlord? Or you really do go out of your way to categorize every hobby group out there?

So with all these groups that Matt posted, you still can't find a group of Lotr players Lorddraconum?

I just started getting back into the game. So i did get in a game this weekend. Like the person I was playing with. We think alot of them might be closet painters.

I dont play at Chinook GW and some of the stores are in my town. So only found a few people so far. I will slowly branch out. I am a member of some of them. Calgary wargaming is where I have been talking to a few people.

Revival!

**UPDATE**

As of late 2016 I have yet to find any other LOTR SBG clubs in Edmonton. I have checked through most of the groups -as Matt-Shadowlord posted earlier- none are still active, to my knowledge, or they have transitioned onto other games. I phoned different hobby stores throughout the Edmonton Area, and asked if there was still a group that met to play. And every place I called said no.

I guess that leaves me with the only option of setting up my own casual club and organizing events and such. If, there are any fellow Edmontonians on the forum give me a holler, so we can meet up and get back to playing.
