A) A secret wargamer?
B) An anti-wargamer?
C) Just an annoying scumbag?
"Eh? what's all this about then?"
Perhaps I should explain. I live in a top floor flat of a house built as 6 flats, the upper floors sharing a stairway and front door with letter box.
Back in December, I was heading out to do some shopping on a Saturday morning just as the post was being delivered. I quickly sorted through it, separating it out by flat and placing each flat's post on a separate step. there wre three items for me, one of which was my subscription copy of Wargames Illustrated. When I got back from my shopping trip just over an hour later, the Wargems Illustrated had disappeared. I gave it a couple of days in case a neighbour had picked it up by mistake and returned it, but they never did so I ended up buying a copy from a newsagent near where I work.
It now appears that my subscription copy of the current issue of Miniature Wargames has disappeared - I should have received it last week, but no sign of it so far.
I should note that all of my neighbours in the upper flats are from overseas and from the brief conversations I've had with some of them don't speak much English (it's quite possible that other members of their households do speak reasonable English, just not the ones I've spoken to).
I should also note that as far as I can make out it is only these two magazines that have miraculously vanished.
So, do I have a secret wargamer, an anti-wargamer or just an annoying scumbag among my neighbours?

- A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).
