Yeah, I know. This meme is being done to death on Facebook and everywhere else.

That doesn't mean we wargamers don't deserve one of our own.

This one may be worthy of printing, framing, and hanging on the wall of the game room!

If you're serious, I can e-mail it to you in print-worthy resolution.

Just PM me with an e-mail address.

Hmmm. The final photograph suggests that there might be an actual, human opponent at the other side of the table. But we know better. So a slight improvement would be for the final photo to make clear that there isn't one.

Nicely executed! But I prefer your the first version. Maybe just zoom out a bit on that last picture to make it clear that you're alone.



Edit: fixed

I didn't do that second pic. "Da Debil" did.

Besides, I prefer to leave it ambiguous as to whether we always play alone or not.

Another image I was considering was two wargamers, both of whom have their heads buried in the manual.

I think this pic should be the new official image for the wargaming subdomain, all apologies to HG Wells!

Awesome! All self respecting Grogs should frame this and proudly display it in their war rooms. Perhaps we could get a bulk printing discount...

cool

Amusingly, I showed this to my wife just before I posted it and she said,

"You know, I appreciate why that 'spouse' pic is funny and you should keep it as it is, but I really don't think that about your game collection."

Have I mentioned how much I love my wife?

There are two or three wargamers who are not married. whistle

Any chance of s/o instead of spouse on the subdomain pic?

I'm actually a little surprised that no one's called me on the Nuremberg rally image.

I guess wargamers really do think other gamers think we're Nazi-lovers.

Actually, I thought of wording it that way about 20 minutes after I put it up. Your wish is my command!

Here's the slightly altered version:



The other alternate version of the "What I Really Do" image was going to be a wargamer clipping corners, but that might have unleashed a chitstorm of unparalleled magnitude.

No, that would actually have been funny.

I laughed so hard I almost dropped my 3mm radius mb counter clipper!

Personally I think the images "what society thinks I do" and "what other gamers think I do" should be reversed...

It's a great poster though, thanks.
