I saw an article claiming the Cloche is making a comeback.

That, of course, got me thinking about boardgames.

Are hats Geek?

One of the most memorable games of Wooden Ships & Iron Men I ever played involved paper hats. Many games feature artwork with characters that wear hats.

Is the baseball cap anti-geek? Is the Trilby too geek?

Is it wrong that I like to shout the word "Porkpie" once the elevator door closes?

The Trilby and other narrow brims are too in fashion to be geek. Now, wide brim hats, on the other hand…

For you, Chanfan, I'm thinking pinched crown and medium tentacles.

Well, in the winter months I sometimes wear a Fedora - especially to church, if its not too windy. Summertime I don't wear a hat unless working outside and its a straw hat.

Hats are great and should be encouraged.

When we finally get around to playing the Axis and Allies Anniversary edition we're planning on wearing appropriate hats for each nation (complete with bad accents). I've already got the Zulu-style pith helm for the Brits and an Amercian Civil War cap for the US!
