I sneeze a lot during the "cedar" period but haven't blown any figures off of the table yet.

The Cedar period? Was that before or after the Tudors…?

No one shows any sympathy for my roster game allergy.

I've had gamers with very severe allergies, in the past. They moved out of state, a number of years ago, but on rare occasions, we still get together. We keep the trigger substances out of the area when they are present. For these rare occasions, I rated my impact a, "1." Cheers!

Depends on the time of year and which plants are trying to kill me with their pollen.

I used to have horrible hay fever every fall but have taken treatments for that for many years and it doesn't bother me anymore. HOWEVER, there are certain types of super glue that will trigger an intense bout of sneezing and a runny nose that will flow like a river for an hour. Obviously I have to avoid those and that has some impact on my modelling projects.

I'm alergic to coffee. Not usually a problem with games but have reacted to others spillages at the table.

Allergic to pollen – which I have yet to use on a mini!

Allergic to mold, dust and cats in particular. I have had to leave games at individuals homes due to these allergies. Cats being a major problem.
