I have a Ph.d. It is the highest among my gaming group. What is the highest degree level among your gaming group?

Not a topic that ever gets discussed in any of my groups (and nor should it).

I even keep quiet about my membership of Mensa!

During the summer at my friends house it gets around 29 - 33 degrees (celcious) which is too hot for me. I like to keep it around 19 - 20.

Things in my gaming group are at their highest when they are positioned at a 90 degree angle from the floor. Otherwise, they are leaning or laying down and have not achieved maximum altitude level.

Generally the highest we ever get in my game group is when we stand at a 90 degree angle. If we lean to either side our height decreases.

2nd degree black belt.


I studied a koryu with classical licensure, so I hold oku-iri-sho. Which basically means after about 6 years of study, my teacher finally formally accepted me.

I had to stop training after about 13 years and was on the verge of Sho-mokuroko, which just pretty much means, "You aren't a total screw-up and seemed to have a grasp of the first level of technique...congrats. You aren't the FNG anymore."

In all seriousness, now, this strikes me as an odd topic. I have a Master's, as do others in my group, but my wife, with two masters, and a Ph.D. and a post-doc thinks I'm odd for all the gaming I do.

What does formal education have to do with gaming? Why is this important to you? Or is it just idle curiosity?

I have a PhD in engineering and a JD. There are a number of other PhD, mostly science but at least one philosopher, a PE, a DVM, and a DD. Also assorted teaching credentials and other degrees, plus at least a couple who don't have high school diplomas or drivers' licenses (in fairness, because they are not old enough for either).

So what?

You would assume 3rd grade if you were to be a spectator. Technically, there are several PhDs.

This guy just started a thread on the racial breakdown of game groups also.

I think he is pulling our legs.

We range from college dropouts (me) to PhDs, with college grads being the norm.

My FLGS is a much younger crowd, with mostly college students or recent college dropouts.

Both groups get the occasional second-grader when my son shows up to play Dice Masters or X-Wing.

I was at a Board Game Designer's group meeting, and one guy had a deck builder based on the history of science. His rule was "Biggest Nerd goes first." I volunteered that I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, was immediately outdone by a Master's in Biochemistry, which was in turn topped by a master's in physics and an in-progress PhD. on something that is easily summed up as "The History of Science" for us troglodyte types.

I predict he posts a crossover thread tying racial breakdown to educational levels. It should hit RSP almost immediately.
