Have you ever dreamed about wargaming while asleep?

(a) Happens all of the time.
(b) Occasionally.
(c) No, never in my life.
(d) None of your business what I dream about!

b. Had a vivid one in which I was running a mini con in my large basement.
The house caught on fire,and in true dream logic, no one would leave till they finished their game.

Or maybe that was "true wargamer logic"--anyone remember the year the power got knocked out at the Host? Everyone ran to their cars for flashlights.

B) just as stressful at times, and I'm often losing. 😜

Occasionally, I even roll badly in my dreams.

(b) Not wargaming per say but I have a reoccuring dream where I find Aifix sets for all the periods and units I've ever wanted.

Sleeping – B. I occasionally dream. When I do it is occasionally about wargaming. Usually I forgot to prep for the scenario I am running and am in my underwear.

Daydreaming in Boring Meetings – A.

B. It usually involves deciding which tactics to use in a specific situation. It's as if my brain as I'm sleeping is calculating the various probabilities of success and measuring in all the variables.

B – My dreams always are about games that don't exist. Just last night I dreamed of a Battle star Galactica Fleet star ship game using counters…

I've had a few wargaming related dreams, but one of the more common ones involves attending a con or more specifically desperately trying to attend one.

It's either been merged with another unrelated event so I have to search for the actual, but well-hidden wargaming part. Or I'm desperately late and people are starting to pack. Sometimes I'm trying to find my way around the place and I'm sidetracked by something.

In my last dream the con was happening in some kind of mall, and before I knew it I was stuck on a train which left me in a rather nice modern station, but a huge distance from the con …

No, but I have dreamed of electric sheep.

B. Varies from the discovery of rare and super cheap games or miniatures I've always wanted, to attending or trying to attend a gaming event.

B, I am in a vast vendor set up and I do not have enough money to buy what I want.

No, never. I've dreamt often about having all my armies painted and ready to play, though. Usually, while awake.

Black Cavalier26 Oct 2017 3:47 p.m. PST

B, but not directly about playing a war game.

My wargaming dreams about going to a hobby store and finding a cache of old very valuable, usually GW, figures that I can buy for a steal and sell for a huge profit to co tinge to fund my gaming. I've had this dream in some form or another twice, and be very disappointed both times when I woke up.

Rudy's dream is my reality.

C. No excitement here.

I seldom remember my dreams to know if I do or not.

occasionally playing the game, occasionally some of my fellow players appear in non wargaming situations. The games are sort of playable as long as you allow for the usual chaos of dreams
