POLL DESCRIPTION

Do you have personal reservations about game scenarios involving present-day conflicts - such as Afghanistan (war in the recent past, with ongoing fighting), Iraq or North Korea (potential future conflicts)?

need more present-day gaming

More wargamers should play present-day conflicts, to gain a greater understanding of political and military issues of our own times.

prefer scenarios set in previous decades

I'm more comfortable playing games set at least 10 years into the past. Somalia, OK - Afghanistan (recent war), not OK.

doesn't bother me

I'll play anything, any time.

prefer scenarios of WWII or earlier

I prefer to avoid the modern wargaming period.

past wars only

I'll game present-day conflicts, but only when they're "done" - not while they are ongoing.

what-if scenarios only

I'll play fictional and speculative scenarios only.

prefer scenarios involving "other" countries

I'll play present-day conflicts as long as they involve "other" countries - not my own country.
