The other alternate version of the "What I Really Do" image was going to be a wargamer clipping corners, but that might have unleashed a chitstorm of unparalleled magnitude.

No, that would actually have been funny.


After living through the election of the "hanging chads" (and what did Chad ever do to make them all so mad???) we take our little piles of "chits" very serioulsy here in Flori-duh!!

It's NOT funny man!

Hi Pelle,

This version:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/1244045/kozure?size=origi...

... is probably the one you can go ahead and re-post.

I've posted it on my wall on Facebook but I keep a private profile so I'm not sure how I share it beyond my circle of friends.

[edit]

I just "shared" the post on my wall and assigned it "public" privacy level. I don't know how other people would link to it.

Sorry, I'm not a heavy Facebook user so I'm not sure the best way to go about this.

OK. I just link to that and say "by Kozure@bgg". Don't want to take credit.

Pretending to have fixed something that people enjoy is probably not a way to endear yourself. Subsequent vanity probably does not help either.

Thanks for the GG tips, everyone.

I just found the original version linked by a friend to a Facebook wall post on someone else's page through a completely different source, so I guess it's made the rounds.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

Has anyone done/seen one for Eurogames and Ameritrash games yet?

I'm thinking of doing those up later this evening.

Yeah, I know. This meme is being done to death on Facebook and everywhere else.

That doesn't mean we wargamers don't deserve one of our own.



Sometimes what you think you're doing.. is what you're really doing:




Spoiler (click to reveal)

(and you people are marrying the wrong spouses)

It is only midnight here in NY, not what I would normally consider too late for me, but I just don't understand that sentence.

I am going to bed and hopefully it will come together for me tomorrow.

You may have missed this anecdote:

Amusingly, I showed this to my wife just before I posted it and she said,

"You know, I appreciate why that 'spouse' pic is funny and you should keep it as it is, but I really don't think that about your game collection."

Have I mentioned how much I love my wife?

I've put up one for Abstract Gamers in this thread:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/769247/what-eurogamers-r...

One for Ameritrashers is on the way.

This meme usually contrasts "What I think I do" with "What I actually do"

Presumably, when one plays Kingmaker, one imagines one is a noble fighting to control the throne of England. The picture shows a bunch of people who look like nobles fighting to control the throne of England.

Same concept for the Britannia picture.
