When I was young I got introduced to a game called Warhammer 40,000. To play the game, you purchase little plastic miniatures, paint them, then fight battles with your friends. Making pewpew sounds is optional but encouraged.
The game seems innocent enough, but I haden’t played in years. I read the fantastic books about the lore surrounding the 40k universe, but I didn’t play, or paint or collect anymore. Until…I walked in to my local Games Workshop store with my girlfriend, completely intent on buying one little thing for us to play at home. But one thing lead to another and–
