Well. We've had Games urging you to wear a hat, which was all very well and good but the next obvious step is of course the knitted beard.

This is a geeklist dedicated to that missing link. Feel free to add more after knitting your own.

Looking through the Battle Manual without a beard makes one feel like a fresh-faced youth.

It is a well-known fact that gentlemen with beards are more trustworthy and persuasive than ordinary persons; for this reason, some sort of facial covering is a must when playing negotiation games. Not only does it hide any involuntary facial tics that might occur when making a promise which lacks a full totality of truthiness and goodwill, but it gives the bearer something to stroke thoughtfully when he is deliberating over a dicey proposition.

So critical are beards to negotiation, I was somewhat disappointed to discover that no knitted beards were included with the copy of the game. It seems like such player aids should always be supplied for this type of contest, so that clean-shaven men will not be at a disadvantage, and to help ladies of the female persuasion overcome the biological deficiencies of their gender. Perhaps if I have time I will upload a file containing paper beards which can be cut out and applied to the face with adhesive tape.

Now, some of the anti-beard camp might point out that none of the three ancient Romans are wearing beards, knitted or otherwise, on the box cover. However, note the guarded, tenuous poses; note the harried lack of confidence, the darting eye, the sheen of anxious perspiration. Are these confident bargainers, knowing and puissant? I think not. Even a child with a knitted beard could bamboozle these three, leaving them naked as babes in some Roman back-alley with not a denarius between them. Go beardless at your peril, my friends.
