Now that's just mean. A unibrow doesn't mean poor hygiene or excessive B.O. Personally, I pluck. but if I didn't for 6 months or so, I'd have a few crossover hairs.

I personally try to count how many con stereotypes I can find.

1. bone skinny white kid with bottle glasses
2. overweight guy with goatee (my people)
3. girl/friend that is there against there will (my wife)

The fact that it isn't about their health makes it fun! You take care of yours. I take care of mine. Others don't feel that it is essential. That is fine by me, but it makes you look goofy.

A Smart phone.

While I'm one of the few that don't own a smart phone... nothing irks me more than sitting at a table in the midst of a game only to watch someone pay little to no attention to the game because they're immersed in some nonsense with the Internet/Social Media/Texting.

Body odour, bad breath or cigarette smoke.
Most gamers then?

This, this, this! It's not a board game, but I had to implement and no cell phones policy while DMing D&D once because my entire party was texting under the table and paid no attention, despite claiming to want to play.

A non gaming partner.


Or at least, someone who is not willing to give games a go. I never understand why some people come along to a game night and not join in, or just want to swing the entertainment over to mere socialising instead of socialising over a game.

If a veggie came to a sausage (festival not appropriate so substitute required) tasting event then I would be pretty annoyed as they cannot join in by definition (meat sausages only at this event) and if they tried to dissuade us all from eating meat I would be really mad, as they whole point is to try new sausages.

A very bad analogy, but you get the gist.


For me, a non-gaming partner who:

a) either doesn't like or doesn't understand any of our favourite games, so we have to play something mindless and boring

b) doesn't even really want to be there (and are in fact only there because their gaming partner invited them), and although they'll play games it's obvious they aren't enjoying them, which sucks the fun out of gaming for everyone else

c) makes little effort to even socialise and ends up sitting there looking bored and being quiet no matter how much effort you as a host make to include them in some way

The combination of "let's play Crap Game X because Ashley's here," and the fact that Ashley has no interest in being here or playing anyway drives me mad. Why make everyone suffer?
It could be worse, you should see what happens when an 'Ashley' decides that she likes someone else in the group (or (as in one incident I can recall) any male who will pay her attention).

Flagrant misuse of parenthesis. Or brackets, as I believe the Brits call them.

to what (by which I mean an item (rather then a person (or philosophical concept))) are you (meaning you as a person (rather then the third person (you)) in the first person) referring?

Not true! I saw a real addict using one to keep score "because people might push the markers in the board out of place". He knows who he his so I will not name him...

And some of us pull these out to check out things about the game on BGG - usually when we're learning a new game or being introduced to one that only has rules in German and we don't feel we can rely on the explainer. whistle

We never get any board gaming done when somebody brings hookers, plus then there's no money for pizza and doritos--which I personally think are staples for game night. shake


Close but no cigar. Dead hooker.

Nothing worse.


Tru dat.

Except... Undead hooker... zombie


No way... I would argue undead hookers are far preferable to dead hookers.


Oh.


First off, if hookers are stopping the game play, you just aren't playing the right game.

And as for undead hookers, remember, you can't spell necromancer without romance.

Incomplete boardgame (it actually happened and we had to use peanuts to represent zombies - each zombie killed meant peanuts for that person so it worked out ok)

I might be a little late to the party (or game night), but how about that one guy who simply must get drunk, or even high, especially when it is understood that it will not be that kind of "game night," and that such behavior detracts from the enjoyment of all the others present, who are not interested in the same kind of behavior?
