What celebrity would you like to game with ? Has to be somebody living ( no digging up Rommel to see if he's any good at blitzkreig commander) and preferably a valid reason ( no Carmen Electra coz she's hot). So choose your celeb .

I would pick Eddie Izzard. Intelligent, funny and well versed in ancient history.

Connard Sage Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 6:04 a.m. PST

So Carmen Electra's out because she's hot, but a crossdressing alternative comedian's OK?

In that case, Xanthe Mallett and Alice Roberts. They're both intelligent and well versed in their field.

Any stand-up that can work a joke about the name of carthaginian generals into a routine is obviously allowed.

Alice Roberts is allowed, as is Bethany Hughes……

Mel Gibson – I would sooooo love burning his church.

I would like to game with Cassandra Peterson because of her vast… knowledge of the cinema and her deep…appreciation for the macabre in the art of the motion picture. These are the… uh two reasons I would like to game with her. I would especially like to play Hide the er the Straits of Salamis.

David Manley11 Feb 2012 6:16 a.m. PST

Reese Witherspoon. I understand she has a deep but hidden interest in WW2 coastal forces operations.

vtsaogames11 Feb 2012 6:38 a.m. PST

Helen Mirren – she's my age.

Nappy29388 Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:14 a.m. PST

My wife,

epturner11 Feb 2012 7:14 a.m. PST

Kate Winslet. She's smart and hot. Emma Thompson, a little older, but still smart and attractive to me.

I reject your rejection of Carmen Electra.
I don't want to upset her when she drops by tonight to pick up the Katyushas she is borrowing to use at the Flames of War tournament next weeekend.

CPT Jake Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:38 a.m. PST

Charlie Sheen. I would put him in charge of providing refreshemnts and entertainment for the post game party.

Oh yeah…

WeeSparky11 Feb 2012 7:45 a.m. PST

Bruce Campbell

SECURITY MINISTER CRITTER Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:51 a.m. PST

Glen Campbell*. He'll believe anything I tell him about the rules… (Alzheimer's)
Whil Wheaton otherwise.

PapaSync Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:52 a.m. PST

The one and only Michelle Rodriguez.

That's one Latina who knows how a handle gun. Weather its mutants, zombies, aliens or gang bangers (I'll leave that last one to be interpreted with your own imagination). I'll take point with her anytime.


Cosmic Reset Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:58 a.m. PST


But if that were not possible, then Robin Williams.

Personal logo enfant perdus Supporting Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 7:59 a.m. PST

Tom Hanks.

He's very interested in and knowledgable about WWII and is apparently the nicest guy in the world.

Company D Miniatures Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 8:29 a.m. PST

I would go with Eva Mendez as her knowledge of Roman Army siege techniques is second to none.

dBerczerk11 Feb 2012 8:31 a.m. PST

- Newt Gingrich for ACW.
Arnold Schwartzenagger for Ancients.
Russel Crowe for Napoleonic naval.
Woody Harelson for post-apocalyptic fantasy.

Mal Wright Fezian Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 8:51 a.m. PST

I'd like to play games with Scarlet Johansen.

Oh and you said there had to be a reason….

Ummmmm…I'm a dirty old man with dilusions!

highlandcatfrog Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 8:54 a.m. PST

Carmen Electra.

I've heard she knows quite a bit about the differences between a Fw-190A-3 and a Fw-190A-8.

Klebert L Hall Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 9:24 a.m. PST

None of them, I expect.

OldGrenadier Fezian11 Feb 2012 10:10 a.m. PST

Drew Carey. Supposedly an actual gamer.

Connard, having checked, your two choices are suitable as well :)

Personal logo Flashman14 Supporting Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 11:43 a.m. PST

You all can take Alice Roberts and I'll take Alice Goodwin.

Huscarle11 Feb 2012 11:52 a.m. PST

Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou, an expert on all things biblical ;-).

ETenebrisLux11 Feb 2012 12:20 p.m. PST

I second Eddie Izzard !
He would be hilarious !

Justin Penwith11 Feb 2012 12:37 p.m. PST

Robin Williams has purchased GW miniatures with his son in the GW Store in San Francisco, so he's certainly a capable opponent or ally, but I would prefer to match wits with Kate Beckinsale and discuss the finer points of playing a vampire while pushing lead/pewter.

I would even pay for her cab fare.

skippy0001 Supporting Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 2:11 p.m. PST

Vin Diesel

Personal logo GreyONE Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 2:17 p.m. PST

Eddie Izzard would be hilarious! However, once he starts talking, no one would be playing. We would just be listening to him and forgetting about the game. Still, I'd have him over at the club anytime.

D A THB11 Feb 2012 2:54 p.m. PST

Sofia Vergara, she'd put up a good fight and would probably enjoy a game as well.

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 3:25 p.m. PST

Alice Cooper

7th Va Cavalry11 Feb 2012 3:56 p.m. PST

The three guys from Big Bang Theory. And of course Penny……..

Weird WWII Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 4:32 p.m. PST

Christy Canyon and Dita Von Teese.

Now that would br a fantastic game!

teenage visigoth Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 5:31 p.m. PST

Zombie H.G. Wells

corporalpat Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 5:40 p.m. PST

I would like to play All Things Zombie with Milla Jovovich, LoTR with Peter Jackson, and IABSM with Cpt. Dale Dye.

WarrenB Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 5:49 p.m. PST

Corporalpat: the problem with that is that PJ would flick through the rulebook, decide that he didn't like most of it and chuck it over his shoulder, then have a bunch of shieldsurfing elves and backflipping hobbits and tossing dwarves. (I imagine he'd be big into tossing. You could say he's a right big t…)

I'd pick the hairy bikers (the original UK ones), 'cos they'd be a laugh and they'd bring good game snacks.

Warren B.

Doc Karl11 Feb 2012 5:52 p.m. PST

Bruce Dickenson from Iron Maiden. Well versed in history and can fly his own plane across the pond to play here in the States.

wrgmr111 Feb 2012 6:08 p.m. PST

I'd like to play a few games of ACW with Shelby Foote.

Militia Pete Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 6:30 p.m. PST

Any space game with Claudia Black. Only if she is wearing a Aeryn Son outfit.

Mike at Work 2 Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 6:47 p.m. PST

Mandy Morbid and Kandy Kane.. they already play D&D…

DalyDR Inactive Member11 Feb 2012 7:34 p.m. PST

I'm breaking the rules:

Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole (he's still alive, right?), and Oliver Reed. We wouldn't get past the scenario's briefing notes, but so what.

Padma Lakshmi

She can bring the refreshments, and roll my dice…..


The Man With Two Bryans11 Feb 2012 9:43 p.m. PST

Dr Lucy Worsley link

21eRegt Supporting Member of TMP11 Feb 2012 10:02 p.m. PST

Sean Connery or Michael Cain. Mostly just to talk to them about their careers, but they have both been in a goodly number of war movies.

Dynaman878912 Feb 2012 5:43 a.m. PST

None – I play to game, I'll admire a famous person for whatever they are famous for, but other then that have no use for them.

Grizzlymc Inactive Member12 Feb 2012 7:09 a.m. PST

Sofia Vergara, she'd put up a good fight and would probably enjoy a game as well.

I think that you are supposed to wargame with the celeb.

SaintGermaine Inactive Member12 Feb 2012 8:34 a.m. PST

Padma is smart enough to do more than be someone's servant.

I have a long list but Colin Powell would be at the top.

Thalia Assuras (newscaster) always admired her.

Personal logo J Womack 94 Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member12 Feb 2012 9:48 p.m. PST

Coo… hard one to choose.

Sir Sean would be up there. I know he's big into Scotich history, so maybe a Jacobite game?

Gary Busey. He'd try to eat the dice, the poor Bleeped text.

Peter Cushing (is he still alive? probably not). But the old Grand Moff was a gamer in his day.

Kevin SMith. It would be funny.

kreoseus2 Inactive Member13 Feb 2012 2:59 a.m. PST

So we have assorted comedians, a few cooks, the odd musician and various women "coz they are hot". No wants to game with BRIAN BLESSED ?

stenicplus Inactive Member13 Feb 2012 6:31 a.m. PST

Lisa Rogers from Scrapheap Challenge. I just know she'd be so into wargaming givent the chance.
