Irrational Hatred: A Guide for the Beginning Geek (please add)
- T. B.(bohemian)United States
You think, perhaps, you'd like to become an active member of this community. So, you rate your collection, you assemble a few largely ignored geeklists of games that you played over various weekends with your brother, you place a few tentative comments in the forums. Warm fuzzies abound as you celebrate your hobby with like minded people from all over the world who love boardgaming as much as you!
Hold it right there, bucko.
Let's get one things straight, right now. It doesn't matter how many close-up photos of game boards you post, or how many helpful suggestions you give to people looking for a two player game that they can play with their wife, you're not going to get anywhere in this community until you do the one thing that TRULY unites all of us:
Pick something to hate. An entire classification of game. And hate it fervently, dogmatically, above all, irrationally. Every chance you get, paint it with broad, violent, garish, strokes, and generalize, generalize, generalize!
Here's a rough guide for the beginner. Now, I'm pretty much a beginner myself, so, after posting what I've learned already, I'm reaching out to the commuity to help me with this one. Tell us what we can hate, and tell us how.
