If I'm running a demo game and one is available, then yes. I will put the main charts and movement information, weapons ranges, etc. up on the board to help out the players. Did this a number of times up at West Point when our club ran demo games for the cadets.

Not used while playing. One whiteboard for things to do in game room, usually to paint. A sickening demoralizing sight.
Another chalk,for day's duties. Occasionally fulfilled.

I do use a whiteboard though not for keeping track of information.
2mm figures weigh very little so I have magnetic tape on the bases.The whiteboard was painted in greens/browns and used for the gaming table.Magnetic bases will remain in place should the board take a knock.

What's a "chalkboard"? Is it the same as a "Blackboard"? These have all surely disappeared 50 years ago.
We've used Whiteboards when we're learning a new game. Useful tools for a briefing, highlighting the stages of a complicated game eg Great War Spearhead, recording victory objectives gained, army breakpoints etc for all to see.

No, they didn't disappear 50 years ago, I had them as late as 2001 in first year in high school, second-year we moved location and got a nice new school with a whiteboard.
When I took up maths some years later with was all done on a digital board.

How quaint, Gunny.
YouTube link (from 50 years ago).
Yes I believe 'interactive' boards are de rigeur now.

A million years ago playing D&D we used the recreational blackboard to play on drawing rooms and chambers that 28mm figures moved around on. I have a former white board in my basement as work table, a former chemical company work table in my out building as a work table.

Well, not to alarm anyone about the state of technology in the US Army, but the demos we ran at West Point were in the last five years and the the classrooms in Upton Hall all had chalkboards :)
