Hello there.

 

Just letting you guys know we have published last week the second part of our “Papo de Mesa Podcast” about wargaming clubs in Brazil.

 

It is Portuguese spoken, so it might not be of interest to my English readers. Having said that if you speak Portuguese do check it out, either through the post on our Podcast’s blog or right here on the blog through the Youtube Player available further down on this post.

Hello there Reader.

 

Another quick post today letting you know we’ve published the first part of our fifth episode of the Papo de Mesa Podcast.

 

Again this is a Portuguese spoken podcast but if you speak the language I couldn’t recommend it more. This time around the hosts welcome guests from five Brazilian wargaming clubs to discuss the incipient club phenomenon in Brazil.

Hello Reader.

If you live abroad you probably know a couple of clubs devoted to gaming right? From what I understand in some foreign countries the associative spirit is encouraged from an early age, starting in schools which promote many “interest clubs” ranging from book clubs, debate clubs and math teams to varied hobby clubs and gaming clubs.

It’s no secret that clubs have a great social aspect not only promoting the interaction between members, and the opportunity to exercise their common interest, but also being a reassuring factor to members showing that no matter how “weird” your hobby/personal interest may be, there’s others out there who share your passion, even if it’s sock sniffing (ok, there might not be clubs around for THAT!).

Well, for some reason I can’t fathom clubs are not that common in Brazil. We do have tennis clubs pretty much everywhere (go figure right? Every small town I’ve lived in for the last 8 years had one) with their inevitable tennis courts and swimming pools, and we do have some schools which encourage its students to form student councils but the hobby clubs are almost non-existent in schools.

So it should come as no surprise to you that gaming clubs are a recent innovation in the hobby scenario in Brazil but fortunately more and more wargamers around the country are feeling the need to associate and clubs are appearing all over the country. We went from a single club scenario, the now extinct “Martelo de Guerra” (“Warhammer” in English) in Rio de Janeiro, to a multi-club one in the space of a few years.
