This thread getting moved to RSP because the OP was so vague.

Who wants to be first to veer off topic? devil


I keep forgetting that many wargamers HERE are a combination of REDACTED.

If you can't figure it out, whatever... shake

My guess is the 2012 AH Cup event.

Then again, I'm stupid.

So stupid, I don't even know what "obtuse" means. I think it has something to do with being flabby, which I am.

So, instead of being energized to go again, this negativity and cynicism now has me feeling less inclined to proceed than last year, when I had to be convinced to do it for a third year.

My apologies for trying to express my enjoyment of this hobby in my own way.

Let me strike a counter-blow against negativity. I'm down for another offensive through the ardennes, or fighting on the beaches, or aiming a broadsides at a British Man of War, or my own personal 'mini-game' of "Will Richthofen's War gain 5 kills to achieve Ace status?'.

Bring on the Avalon Hill cup for another round of Grognardy goodness, puh-retty-puh-leeeze

Let this be the fourth coming. The tinsel is on the tree, the lights are twinkling, it's time for the AH challenge cup. My money is on 'Wooden Ships and Iron Men'...

It would be good manners to link to whatever this thread is about.

After a google search, I found two threads:

A Geeklist:

http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/64268/the-2011-avalon-hill...

And this:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/616971/the-2011-avalon-hill-...

I still don't consider myself obtuse or stupid for never having heard of either of these. It's honestly the first I'm reading about it. If this is some kind of meme I'm supposed to have been aware of in order to get my BGG membership card - I must have slipped past the doorman. Where do I report for punishment?

If JL had started this thread the way Greenwood writes rules, he would have taken three paragraphs to say something we'd still be discussing the meaning of.

On an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati, Mr. Carlson's son visits the radio station while he's home from some military boarding school. He's very arrogant and rude, and he tells Herb that he's obtuse. Herb doesn't know what it means, so there's this really funny scene where he looks it up in a dictionary and starts to read it aloud. It isn't until he gets through the geometric meanings and arrives at the word dull that he understands the kid insulted him.

Nah, that's not the issue. He was being cute and coy to generate interest in whatever the AH Cup is. We get that. The trouble was, when other people tried to tease back, instead of just going with it and continuing to generate interest, say something funny, etc., he got defensive and overbearing and insulting for some strange reason.

And then instead of apologizing for insulting - what looks like more than a few people - he's now sulking and threatening to take his ball and go home.

I don't think Don Greenwood ever did that.


I was using the opportunity to make a joke about Greenwood's rules writing - not critique JL's behavior.
