Interesting article here - BBC News - Why are adults still launching tabletop war? Anyone on ARRSE a GW or wider tabletop gamer? I'll confess to being one, and I know quite a few military types from all sorts of capbadges who do it as well. Its weird though - people give all manner of grief to people who like tabletop games as being weird or anti-social, yet think that sitting in front of a Tv screen watching eastenders and being anti-social is normal. I know its definitely not the coolest interest out there, and boy does it have some odd people playing it, but equally there are plenty of normal well adjusted folk (often in the forces or elsewhere) who enjoy it as a fun social pasttime - what are the chances of it ever being socially acceptable?
