When viewing pictures of games. Does anyone else like seeing cups and cans and dice and bellys. I like the reminder that no matter how lifelike, humans are behind it all. I feel like I am "behind the scence".

I do not mind gaming apparatus, but do not like to view human detritus lying around, as it too often obscures the view of the game.

When I was doing demo or audience participation back in the 70's, the prime rule was "Only figures and terrain on the table". No paper, cups, sandwiches… nothing on the table except what was needed for the game.

Yes, of course, since otherwise they wouldn't be daft enough to put them in the photos.

Someone must like them.

Not me though.

It's "real life" at games, we drink, we eat, we have fat bellies. What's the point of the pic if it isn't telling the whole truth? And why miss the smiles and groan faces when rolls go one way or the other?
