In the fact that I usually run any non-solo games past my wife mainly because she's the one that plays them with me along with my step-daughter. That aside I usually have her watch a video or two and describe the game to her before that. While she has questioned what I've said with chit, the reaction to meeple recently was rather great. She started laughing at me for the phrase. Even after questioning me on it she was a little confused until I showed her a picture of one.
Have you ever let a gamer phrase like that slip in normal conversation and gotten a decent reaction from friends and loved ones? Or is this just me?
