Garage Sale Hack

Over the past two weeks, my wife has been prepping for our garage sale.  This being both of our second marriages, we have a lot of duplicates.  As we were preparing for our garage sale, I decided to put some old D&D books up for sale as well as a handful of D&D 4E books.

I could likely get a better deal on eBay, but I was curious what the correlation of garage sailors and those who played D&D.  And if I were lucky, I might find a fellow gamer. I was stunned.

I live in Elkhart county, Indiana, and as one woman said “About the only thing to do here is play D&D.” That’s not entirely true, but it cleaves close to the truth.

As it turns out, I believe that 15% of the garage sailors had played D&D or still played D&D.

And, as a bonus, I found one person who was willing to run old school D&D games.  I’m going to attempt to incorporate him (and his buddy) into our game group.  Of course we’ll both want to make sure that we are a good fit for each other.  After all, a game group is disturbingly similar to a relationship.
