Some Questions For The Pundit

ColonelHardisson:
I always thought that saying you were from Uruguay was just a joke, but you have posted that you really are from there. I'm genuinely interested in the state of gaming there, as I really haven't heard much about how the hobby fares in places other than North America, Europe, and Australia. I think I've seen posts by people from Brazil, but not many. So I was wondering if you would mind telling me a bit about the RPG hobby in Uruguay.

I don't know if you've been to the US, but I was wondering if there were any differences between gamer culture in the US and Uruguay that might surprise us? Are there many game shops in Uruguay? What are they like? How difficult is it to find others to game with? I'm having a hard time of it myself, and I'm not too far from one of the largest cities in the US! What games are popular in Uruguay? Are there many notable "home grown" RPGs in Uruguay? How do they differ from games like D&D, and how are they similar?

I hope you don't mind me peppering you with questions like this, but I'm genuinely interested in this.

Isn't single handedly impossible anyway. After all, if no ones reads the blog I don't see how it can have a impact.

Shutting up now :p
