It has been nearly 6 months since I last played out a scene (and I am in the middle of an adventure!). I have been pondering why I don't play more RPG. After all, it takes minimal preparation and materials. But that may be part of the problem. It lacks the tactile experience of one of my miniatures games. I've wrestled with this dilemma before and once again I am debating the issue. I don't want to go with full-blown miniatures, however, because I don't want to add more painting chores to my to-do list.
