Gaming Group, also known as RAGG, was originally created by a very diverse group of dedicated game players in the small town of Plattsburgh, in northeastern
New York state.
In time, RAGG developed into a "black book" directory, verbal bulletin board, and informal network for local,
and transient gamers from the local area which included, State University of New York's Plattsburgh Campus and Plattsburgh Air Force Base (until its closure). This allowed
players to contact on another, referees to advertise new games, and/or established groups to recruit new players for expanding games.
With the sponsorship of "Fantastic Planet,"
and "Gamemaster," two of the three local game and hobby stores in the Plattsburgh, RAGG hosted informal tournaments and
various ad hoc gaming events.
Unfortunately, "...all good things must
come to an end...." People move on, bases close, industries relocate, students graduate ... things change. Roll'em Again
Gaming Group's New York Chapter has not gone. But after three years it
was, regretfully, time for me to go.
