Hooo boy ...

You can host games if you want without insurance. I know for a fact that there have been many games played on private land, and at people's work ... and there was no insurance ... Maybe it's not the best situation to not have insurance, but not everyone does everything by the book all the time. Depends on who you play with.

Personally, I'm not some whiney bitch, if I got injured during a game on someone's land (and I did, over $2,500 in dental work, half of which I paid myself, my dental plan at work covered the rest) I would take responsibility since I was the one who went there to play. Some people are lowly scum however, and may attempt place blame on others which could potentially put you in hot water if something were to happen to them.

Hypothetically ... if I were you and had that land, I would host smallish private games with respectable players and things would be fine. Don't let all the over sensitive net nannies get ya scared. Just exercise common sense and safety rules and everyone will have a great time.
Few individuals would view themselves as barbarous, no, instead they view themselves in a different light, a distorted reality that justifies who they are and what they have done.
