SAID as "you-row-ger". Now, we've had 'Weuros' (Wallenstein) denotation with LACK of 'acceptance', so then with the recent 'spate' of Small World, QM, etc. results that there's a competing 'Agricopycat' vying for #1. THIS is now the: "EUROger"!

That "Sirocco" by TSR should suffice as a primary 'example', since what other also contained the similar components of theirs?

If Eurogamers knew what it means to have their games compared to Sirocco, it would be Frankenstein and the villagers all over again.

Where does the -ger come from in EUROger?

How about the term Combo Euro/Wargame Theme or C.E.W.T. (pronounced 'cute')?

Or WT (Wargami-Trash)?

RISK began with "little wooden cubes"/ARMIES, so, whom repurposed these unto wherever else then?

This were meant/intended UPON those more recent sort being 'foisted' FROM an actual "War Games" company, and their 'copycat'-"appellation" then.

HOW did you 'pronounce' this "ger" then? Jher or Gir? DO NOT WANT that other 'term' of yours.

All this wing-flapping just because some can't stand calling a game without hexes and cardboard markers a "wargame" - not because it doesn't fit just fine semantically, but because somebody's nose is getting bent.

The irony is that some don't believe a game not having a tabletop covered in terrain occupied by painted miniatures is a wargame, either.

We should focus much less on what separates us, and more on what draws us together. Don't we have enough dividing lines to deal with already?

Just so's you KNOWN, then, BGG-"popularity" by NAME-associated and all else pertaining UPON such in order with: "make it so, too #1!" I did find it 'demeaning' with EACH 'rep'GAME bearing either a "Warrish" or "EUROger" title for this. Can you think of ONE specific kind then?

And more to the point, just WTF is a "real" wargamer?

Conversely, what in the world is an "unreal" wargamer?

And just how does pursuing an "us vs. them" mentality actually help anything, in any case?

I've played a metric butt-ton of wargames in five, full decades. Am I suddenly now not a "real" wargamer because I like some of the things coming from the unorthodox side of the house?
