Project Collective Gateway
How did you get into gaming? Be it miniature wargaming, cards, computer gaming perhaps or maybe roleplaying tabletop sessions.
This is the question I asked the community back in April with a video that launched the series. This video:
Here’s a URL to the page - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxhVHnsauT4
Below in this topic you can see the comments and video replies my video got. Read the comments to this one to see some stories. Also the video replies I received will also be linked together in this one place, so you can watch them together if you so wish.
My intention was to collect together as many of our experiences as possible and let several other sources where I asked the same question be temporarily connected together so that they might share with each other their stories, once I made this project. Now is the time to share this article with you, with all of the sources that I asked in linked together. Out of YouTube I asked around in several forums too. The links to the topics of these are linked in here. I could have posted each of the comments individually, but many of the topics are still alive and being updated/commented in regularly, so giving you the link means a chance to see the threads at their longest, at all times, so that everyone’s say can still be seen as new people discover these threads.
Perhaps you will find you have a number of things in common with each other. Let’s find out!

Well that wraps it then. The link to this article at robert-james-freemantle.blogspot.com will be posted onto all of the above videos and forum topics so that all of you might redirect here and come to see other comments you wouldn’t have normally seen.
I sincerely hope this project has been of some interest to you. Remember, it’s never too late to get involved and post your gateway experiences either. If you want to do that, why not pop over to the original video itself and leave a comment. It will always be fresh.
All the best!
