As has been said already, it's all about the opponents coming to a mutual agreement on how they want to play. There's no "right" way to play the game, except in the sense that it should be fun for both sides. Bullwinkle and jmalter have a legitimate way they prefer to play, as do bradfordkay and others along the more 'historically constrained' line of thought.

AE can certainly accomodate both and it does. Most issues of 'gaminess' I see and have seen arise during AARs is when one player is blind sided by something he was not aware of. At that point it becomes a matter of discussion between the opponents who can hopefully come to a reasoned and mutual agreement.

I would always recommend to anyone starting a game with a new opponent to play a scenario first. This allows both sides to feel each other out and get a sense of each other's playing style.

Brother Brush hat, as always , speaks words of wisdom. And this time he did it without being so damned infuriating!

I try....and mostly fail apparently. And my wife wonders why I don't talk much.......

And I always thought it was because you were standing around with your fingers in your ears waiting for the earth shattering KABOOM!

I'd like to hear from a few people about what they consider "Gamey" is. No, I don't mean how Logboy smells after a day IN the Seattle rain (Just kidding Nik!) or how the deer (venison) that uncle what's his-name shot and insists on subjecting the family to taste. I mean as the term is used in these forums. Personally , I feel that the term has been misused, and grown to encompass far more then it's creator (whom ever that might be) intended.

And since I've been uninvited (dis-invited? well, at any event, asked to leave) by another forumite on his thread (obviously ignoring the reality that none of us "own" these threads....Matrix does), I feel that maybe the time has come for us to define , capture and get this monster under control.

So what do you think , gentlemen and lady ?

BTW , I'm not a cranky old man (but I do play one in the Geezer thread. The same thread which a professional Swedish Army officer plays a flowerchild. Obviously some people have difficulty tell theatre from reality). I might be considerd a Angry middle aged man. The major difference is a cranky old man just complains, the other tries to do something about it. And I would like to hear everyones view. Not just the ones that conform with my own. Thanks.

I am due beer and travel money, and that has not arrived, that is the only significant issue you have to consider.
