The only time I've ever seen a female become "The Bitcher" in a game, was during LARPs. Yeah, I confess- I used to play LARP...but I've been clean for five years now and I'm really cured :-P

However...I've seen quite a few males who fit the description to a tee... it's one of the reasons I refuse to play any type of wargames/RPGs in game stores. I ran into one particular diaper-stain several years ago at a local hobby store, who proceeded to bitch, moan and complain loudly whenever someone either knocked out his units or the dice went against him. He also questioned everything the other players did, wanting to see the rules and all but accusing everyone of cheating. The store owner kept an eye on him, and when the guy actually threatened one of the other players (a kid about 17 years old- who did nothing but wipe out one of the jerks units), the owner finally had enough and threw this rectal cavity out and banned him. This guy was about mid-30s, apparently a long-time GW player; it's unbelievable that an individual can act that way- over a game

POLL DESCRIPTION

In a post to a toy soldiers mailing list, a gamer's fiance describes herself as:

The Bitcher - She's the girl you have over to play a game and she questions every rule, won't let you bend them, and then proceeds to bend them herself.

She runs around the table in a vain victory dance when something minor is accomplished, and sulks like a child if you do the same.

She won't speak to you after she loses, and you better not touch her feet that night in bed while you are being forced to stay on your side of the bed!

Have you ever gamed with someone who fits this category?
