POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP muses:

I think many gamers are at least a little superstitious. The weekend was our annual two-day demonstration wargame at our local Train and Hobby Show. Ligny, this year. Needless to say, there was a certain amount of mumbling against dice: "cold" dice being discarded for, hopefully, lucky dice etc. I'm not superstitious at all, so I won't mention I, as always, briefly placed my little metal figure of Napoleon on the Prussian backline. At any rate, I was wondering what the chief superstitions are amongst we wargamers. Clearly, I'm in the 'lucky talisman figure' camp.
