You meet all sorts of people playing wargames. By which I mean, "You come across some very nice people, and some raving lunatics." Rick Norton recalls one of the latter category:

"It was a Boxer rebellion game run by Bob and Cleo (a well-known married couple famous for their matching Hawaiian shirts) many years ago. It was enjoyable and relatively straight forward, save for the presence of "Nazi Sunflower Boy," an earnest young man in his 2nd SS Panzer t-shirt. He would play only Germans and displayed a superb sense of every nation for itself as he abandoned Steve's Russians to be massacred on a river bank. That might have been memorable enough, but what was spectacular was his incessant consumption of sunflower seeds and leaving the husks in piles along the side of the table."
