we play at my house. And we don't use a full rule-set. Just the basics, as I have a couple of players who would anorak like crazy if they got their hands on an 800 page rule-book. So I play the role of GM and decide what goes down and what does not. It works for us.
Have not really had a real game since football season started. We tried a few since then, but they were half-heartedly put together and we got bored before finishing.
would be some examples of what we have done so far.
