Just a silly question to lighten the mood. What would you do?

If playing games at home with mom and the cats becomes as badass as drinking whiskey surrounded by hot chicks with loose morals in an underground bar in the 30's, I'm totally in.

I'd probably play more games than I do now.

Since you're going to be outlaws anyway, would you rob from the rich gamers and give to the poor?

By "games" do you mean "guns" or do you mean "abortions"?

But in this silly hypothetical question, let's say that they were outlawed yesterday (or this morning or whatever). What would you do now?

Will the Pentagon be importing these games from Columbia and Afghanistan? I only want good games... none of those back alley games with missing chits and water damaged maps.

They can have my games when they pry them from my cold, dead hands.

Depends on what level of outlawed. Are we talking speeding level, marijuana level, insider trading level, murder level, or child molesting level?


Which level would matter to you?

Unless they actually physically took away my video games, I would still just stop. I can easily live without the board games.

Anything above "insider trading level". I'd be willing to go to white collar prison for playing games, but not do serious time or be put on an offender list that effectively says "Your life is over" ie cannot get a job, extremely restricted in where you can live, etc.

If they outlawed games, they would become as cool as what you're describing overnight.


And outlaw Geeks would become the hottest and coolest lot in town wow
Someone please ban boardgames worldwide NOW

I'd join the Maquis at the sierra and would come down to the city only to buy games in the estraperlo black market. Playing only in the night and occasionally fighting the Guardia Civil - oh yeah.

Hmm, playing games with hot chicks with loose morals... sounds like heaven!


You'd only be hurt in the end... but some of us are OK with that.

Unjust laws have no moral standing with me.

I would moderate my response based purely on chance and severity of punishment for lawbreaking. I have done so in the past in a country with many more unjust laws then this one and would do it in Canada in a blink if I ever had an urge to commit what I consider a victimless crime (luckily I have no inclination for either drugs or prostitutes so I don't feel a need to break local law regularly).

Hummmm.... Probably become actively civilly disobedient and start making a point of getting groups together to play in public.

I could actually see this happening, someplace like North Korea. Who would want to live there, games or no games?

Apparently someone who doesn't enjoy lights in their buildings at nighttime:



By the way, this is a satellite picture at night of the Korean Peninsula.

Anyone wanna guess where the Communist N. Korean and Republican S. Korean border is located...?

I'll be devil's advocate and say I'm all for banning Diplomacy, Monopoly, and Carcassonne from the face of the earth. For the sucking.

Well, and Age of Napoleon because I want to drive up its trade value. Anybody wanna trade for it, post-banning?

And probably San Marco, Memoir '44 or Power Grid just for the random cruelty aspect. As El Jefe, you have to keep people guessing about your sanity.
