I am with you on your last post Henry, some people do take this gaming hobby a bit seriously after all it’s not real.
Imagi-nations are made up but you could argue that all war-gaming is made up as it’s a subjective or is that objective mater of concept.
Having been an umpire on several large games, it helps to have active and fun umpires. The hardest part I have found with using large tables is that war-gamers tend to stick to a 4 – 6 foot space, they can’t get their heads around large spaces and maybe that’s why some games can stagnate.
My rule is enjoy this fascinating hobby and have fun.
