I don't see the link between the supposition of "Can Abnormal People be wargamers too?" and your further elaboration. Sort of like a poor attempt at a segway.

Otherwise I too think its a nice sentiment. Even though I think that some of what is on BGG and CSW isn't procrastination but can be seen as educational or forwarding our hobby. Wasn't it the internet that was the cause of the resurgence in interesting in boardgaming in the first place?

I have always assumed Wargamers are abnormal. Nobody "Normal" does the shit we do.

Abnormal: Not conforming to rule or system; deviating from the usual or normal type.

Seems a reasonable fit. Not abnormal in the "behaviour that deviates from norms of social propriety or accepted standards of mental health" sense.

Normal is relative.

Unfortunately I have no relatives who are normal.

The people in the first and third pictures can, though the black boards in front of their eyes may hamper their play.

The guys in the middle picture? No.

Every set of wargame rules since 1977 have banned the wearing of Loud 70's Shirts and Gold Medallions. That's just the way it is. Disco and wargames do not mix.
