Do you have players or troops who have difficulties waiting?

I don't care how long they have been waiting, the one in the middle still hasn't figure out Downward Facing Dog.

Waiting for another player to take their turn? YES. One would assume that when it is not your turn you would be formulating your next move. Our group has been together more or less for over thirty years, yet some guys will stare at the table like they just walked in the door when it is their turn. I've been known to use an egg timer to hurry them along so I won't have to pull a ruler out of their chest. All in good fun though, because after this long we are family, and you can't pick your family.

What do you mean "you can't pick on your family?" How long has that been a rule?

But I have no problem with waiting because I no longer wait. Outside of Mersey games, if it has an activation roll, I'm out. If life wasn't too short, it is now.

Their dead

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. "They're" is the contraction meaning "They are" as in "They are dead, Jim." which is said to me at least once in every game in which I play.

Jim

This only bothers me if the player wasn't paying attention to the game when it was not their (not they're) turn. Occasionally, someone can do something just before your turn that completely upsets your apple cart and requires replanning. If it's all the time and a function of other behaviour, that is a problem.

You are correct Col Campbell … Don't know whether to blame my America English or autocorrect … frown But I was an Infantryman … So we are known for not being too "literate" … evil grin

Maybe it's one of those games where you are waiting for something funny to happen.

That's not a game – it's my workplace.

Don't get between them and the exit at quitting time!
