What's your ideal game night?

Pick a game.

Now pick a group of people, living, dead or otherwise, to play that game with.

This was the game that got me thinking about my ideal game group.

HP Lovecraft- as this has definate Lovecraftian overtones it would seem rude not to invite him. Just imagine the stories he would weave.

Stephen Fry- the master of alliteration, and another top notch story teller.

Rich Hall- because he cracks me up.

This is a relatively new purchase for me, and one that I'm still trying to get my head around.

Vlaada Chvatil- who better to explain this game to me (and maybe he could teach me how to pronounce his name at the same time)?

Having been a fan of the Discworld series of books since my teens the one person I'd like to play a game of this against is:

Lord Havelock Vetinari- apparently he's quite an accomplished player, and you know he'd finish the night by saying 'Don't let me detain you.'

My favourite GW game.

Andy Jones- one of the designers, to thank him for the many, many happy hours I've spent playing this game. Would it be rude to ask about GW's C&D policy?

Two Games Workshop games? Well GW typified my teenage gaming preferences.

Jonathan 'Fuzz' Martin- Fuzz was my school friend and regular gaming buddy through my teens, we'd game together most weekends (and most days during school holidays), playing most of the games GW sold at that time. He introduced me to Space Hulk and in my first game I remember rolling eight '1's and pretty much rage quitting. We never played it again, and during the summer after his first year at uni I had a phone call to say he'd commited suicide. I'd love to play another game with you good buddy, and this time you can be the Marines.

Horatio Hornblower (if fictional falls under the "otherwise" category), otherwise Horatio Nelson, and preferably one against the other. They could teach me a lot that would be useful in this game, I am certain.
