I tallied the stats for gaming in 2011 at the Edmonton Wargame Group and we had a pretty successful year.


On average 9.5 guys and 2.6 games per night. A lot of board games and miniaturized board games this year. With a new venue, hopefully attendance will pick up even more.

Um, how do you have half a gamer show up?

I never understood that sort of fuzzy math…

I'm not Bob but if you get nine gamers on one night and ten on the next, the average (9+10) / 2 is 9.5

Or maybe just one of them wasn't really that interested…

You arrange your stats by the persons height. If they are x tall or greater then they are a full gamer. Below x they are half a gamer

Ahhh. Or only stayed for half the game?

(hoping that everyone understands I'm just having a giggle over this, I'm not REALLY serious)

Note to self – get sarcasm filter re-calibrated….

Cheers, here's to an even more successful year in 2012!!

Epturner. To clarify your half game post. If I got killed in the first half of the game would I be half a gamer or a full gamer? :)

Oooh. Good question. Maybe if you were recycled as a reinforcement you could get credit for a full game.

But then, if you were a reinforcement for the other side, could you be given credit for two games?

There's a thought.

Eric :-)

Supplemental question
What if you came into the game as a third side. Would you now be 1/3 of a gamer?

<Insert popping noises and smoke billowing from ears>

Ahhhhhh! Brain on fire! Ahhhhhh!

M-u-s-t C-h-o-k-e H-e-r-r-i-n-g!!!!!!!!!

Whew. Okay. Better now.

Absolutely no idea. Though, I'm starting to re-think the wisdom of making snarky posts that encourage this sort of humour.

You can always tell Maritimers, you just can tell them much!

Actually I grew up in Alberta so I got my humor from there. :)
