I talk lots of trash in other games…poker, basketball, other sports, and even miniature golf. I now censor myself at the wargaming table. I think some wargamers intertwine feelings of self-worth with competitive gaming. While I find it silly, I don't wish to hurt or alienate others.

Hey...

I was curious… (and this thread got me thinkin'...)

When playing around the gaming table, is there a lot of trash/smack talk or some sort of taunts/insults?

I know we do. It's all in harmless fun (everybody realizes that it's just goofing off...). There is no real hostility or evilness to the smack/taunts, just some goofing around. And we always try to top each other next game… But we do not let it get in the way of the fun of the game.

Does this ever happen around your table?
