My experience is that gamers tend to behave more like the Goofy Gophers on turn 1. Strangers want to get off to a cordial start. Long time players do the "really, you should go first" with a sly grin, trying to get into their opponents head.

The fireworks come later.

One guy I know started an argument with the gm over the name of the rules.
Refused to give in even when showed the cover.

KPinder, isn't that a lot like "Never argue with idiot, people watching may not be able to tell the difference."

I've never started a fight at a game. And I dare anyone to say different.

My favorite is "never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and it annoys the pig."

"never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and it annoys the pig."

Forgot about that one, I like it too, it can used more often than the others without offending…of course that is also one of my talents, and I always say, "Go with your strengths."

Not quite on the first move and never a fight but I have seen a couple of gamers take their figures off of the table and storm off because:
1) They either felt their opponent was cheating…………
2) His favourite unit was being decimated…………
