  1. We have some personalities in our group. We have captain slow, who is always distracted on his turn and can never remember the rules. Always thinks everyone is ganging up on him. We have a player who always plays the turtle. I don't think I've every seen him be an aggressor. We have one who is legendary in his poor setup. If there is an anti-infantry unit out, he'll make sure to set up his infantry across from it. One with a bit of OCD and keeping all the pieces lined up. I'm the one who is normally playing the roll of keeping the game moving and making sure we're doing the rules right.

  2. Oh crap, I recognise myself in all the roles from the video, and all the roles that Brian just wrote. Crap crap crap.

    (snapped, never play this game again, eat all the chips, picking on others, playing slow, playing fast, believes that is the center of attention, rings the doorbell of an apartment building, hosting the game, being shocked on the usage of the f-word, USING the f-word (well, in greek)).

  3. I just make everyone fight with each other while slowly moving forwards. So easy to do with couples ;-)

  4. That was terrible… it had a lot of potential to actually look at the group closer and talk about how the blow up was resolved / how it affects them down the road.. Instead, it fell short from something actually worth linking to any of my many gamer friends.
