And if that doesn't work. Plan B.


Yeah, I often switch on 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks' album by Plan B to annoy the whiners when my glaring falls on deaf eyes... :)

So how do I deal with Mr. Whiner? I just paint more of the stuff that he does not like, just to annoy him even more.


I wonder if he will ever catch on?

It's not my house or game venue, so I can not invite him to leave. However, sandpaper and guerilla tactics seem to be the only way to deal with this.

:zap:

Do you really have to game with this chap?

Seriously, if you can't talk rationally to him, not much else will make an impact.
Personally, I'd rather game solo than have such a negative experience as associating with such a bore.

That's about it, yeah.

Which reminds me of the great rant by Denis Leary's character at the end of the Christmas movie "The Ref":

"Presents? Is that what you said? Presents? We'll open them when we get there. No, in fact, I'll save you the trouble. Your present is a giant f****ing canon. And you're gonna crawl in it. Then I'm gonna get two pounds of gunpowder and I'm gonna shoot you right out of Jersey! And then I'm gonna drive to Jersey, and pick up all the parts of your body and put them in a plastic bag. Then I'm gonna drive to my house with you in the bag and toss you into the fireplace. I'm gonna get my glass of whiskey and watch the Charlie Brown special with your ashes burning in my f****ing house!"

Strikes me that whiners need something proper o whine about. If all they've got to complain about is how a game of toy soldiers didn't go their way, life for them is actually pretty good...

Maybe they should have a foot chopped off like our Grizz, just to get a dose of perspective.
Being friendly is much more important than being right.

Simple answer is don't game with him anymore. Lifes too short.
