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)?

what-if scenarios only

I'll play fictional and speculative scenarios only.

doesn't bother me

I'll play anything, any time.

prefer scenarios involving "other" countries

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

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.

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.

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.
