Do you play wargames with your missus?

SWMBO allows me to play with friends and with our son but she won't play a wargame with us. 
How about you guys? Are you luckier than me?

  1. Catherine will game with me. She doesn't like games that take ages to teach, and her knowledge of history is woeful, but she enjoys a good game regardless of the background.

    She's played in a few 'Hordes of the Things' tournaments (as have my children), and came close to winning one once.

  2. We played D&D while dating and have a monthly D&D game with friends during the winter months. She will play Zombies, Guillotine, Talisman and other board games but doesn't have any interest in "traditional" war games. Frankly gaming is my hobby and she is involved in other activities I have no interest in.

    A little personal space is a good and healthy thing.

    1. Yes it is healthy and I have it every Sunday evening at a friend's house, but I miss to play sometime with her a good game of Heroquest, zombies or even Risk, anything!

  4. Love the cartoon! No, but I'm ok with it. She almost always gives me the "green light" to slip out and game with my friends so all is good!

    1. The cartoon was what it inspired me to post this!
      I guess you're right as some guys cannot play wargames because of his wife

  5. The view times I convinced her she won the game and wasn't even half as enthusiastic as I was.

    So... no! I won't ask her again!!

    1. Yes, and I can say more or less the same as she allows me to play :)

  10. Mine is a good sport and tends to buy me stuff and has come along to a show, but never played yet, I think it would have to be a 'lightweight' theme though, nothing too obscure... ;)

    1. I wish she showed some interest in my hobby, but maybe I'm a bit silly :)

  11. I know at least one wife who sometimes coerces her husband into wargaming.

  12. No wargames, but she does like to play fantasy MMORPGs, so that's a hobby activity we get to share.
