Sometimes it's fun to get into character when you play a game. Perhps this is a holdover from my days playing RPGs, or maybe it's just fun to use an outrageous accent to contribute to the mood of the game.

Februrary 3, 2004: I've opened this list up for public additions and comments. Enjoy!

How can you NOT go through the ingredient deck using your worst Italian accent?

Part of the fun of this game with us is the horrible "Arkansian" accent we use. It's hilarious to hear "You must plant your first bean" squalled in that accent!

It's either an accent or a way of phrasing your words, but you should be in character when talking to your pupils.

I'd think a thick Scot's brogue would be in order or at least drinking a Scotch ale. I've only played the Battleline version and don't know what an ancient Greek accent sounds like.

This is the report of the first official match at Lucca Games 2003:
http://www.kaosonline.it/kaos.asp?s=44&k=1&id=488
For those who can't read Italian: "I took offf fromm mein airfielz off Lukka on mein Fokker Dr.I togeter vitz te Albatros D.Va off Oberleutnant Ernst Udet fromm Jasta 37.
Vile ve vere flink ofer te tuskan zity ve saf in frontz off uz te SPAD XIII off Maggiore Francesco Baracca off 91a Squadriglia und Sopwith Camel off Lieutenant Stuart Douglas Culley off Experimental Centre off R.A.F. at Martlesham Heath..."
Sorry if it's obscure. Writing in English is an effort for me, doing it with a fake German accent a double one...
Of course, it is German only because the report writer played the role of von Richthofen. If he was a French, Belgian, Russian, Austrian, Italian, American or British pilot instead, it would have been another one. Let's say that a match could resemble a scene of Casablanca, with so many accents to choose among...

Slightly, or not so slightly, drunk. Nationality at your pleasure: the board depicts Italy, of course, but tourists from all over the world (except for France) come here to taste our wine.

The German Security Officer is often heard to say (in the style of the typically British boy's comic, pre-1980):

"Vor you, Tommy ze var iss over!"

..as a POW is sent to the cells.

And of course the British prisoners are often heard to quip,

"Bally Jerry nabbed Ginger with the cutters, Squadron Leadah!"

..and other such silliness.
