JAG (Jersey Association of Gamers) was started in 1991 with an original band of 13 members playing in people's homes. This collection of gaming souls were mostly Roleplayers and Sci-Fi miniaturiasts. As time went by the club grew to include, and eventually was overrun, with boardgamers and historical miniaturists. They experimented with their own monthly newsletter/magazine which was distributed to over 1500 gamers in the Northeastern U.S. and even had a club hotline for a short time for people to get the latest meeting updates and schedule changes. They have now been in existence for over 20 years have developed a web site, a yahoo group, a blog, a facebook page, and two regular meeting places with plenty of room to play. Currently JAG is at over 20 full members and a number of associate members. They rent a hall located in a church (First Congregational Church of Park Ridge) in Northern Bergen County NJ and also meet at the Time Warp game store. JAG supports most major mid-Atlantic conventions, including Historicon, Fall-IN, Cold Wars, and the World Boardgaming Championships. The membership are from diverse backgrounds ranging from teachers, computer professionals, police officers, sales persons, managers, self-employed entrepreneurs, etc. The club has no gaming dogma and will play anything from historical hex based games, family boardgames to historical, fantasy or Sci-Fi miniatures.
