I was going to suggest Shirts v Skins if it happened again... but you make far more sense.

I wonder why I can never get a game?!

Shirts vs Skins? You'd need a crowbar with a gun attachment to get me to undress anything of myself in public. Including shins.

Perhaps I should contribute

A few weeks ago I was at a local hobby store (not miniature hobby, but like RC, wildlife and air gun-hobby) to possibly get a weapon case for my minis. I asked to see the inside of the case, to feel the foam and stuff. The staffer asked if it was to be used for Warhammer (because apparently I was not the first one to buy this case for figs), and I said "No, Warmachine actually. Ever heard of that?" He said he hadn't so I said "Oh well, it's almost like Warhammer."

A neckbeard overheard and instantly joined in to say "Erm, Warmachine is nothing like Warhammer" and called me a moron for making the comparisson. I said "Well, from an outside viewer they are very much alike." and he started laughing and and harassing me even more for somehow being a "GW fanboy".

The staffer threw him out of the store, and everyone in the store was looking. It was gloriously awkward.

I ended up not buying the case because it was gak, but I bought a beer glass, because the staffer was really cool and nice.

Oh the horror, that you had to be in the foul presence of a fat person

I mean seriously people, if someone has genuinely poor personal hygiene and stinks up the place, fine, that's an issue, but the judgement you see around here sometimes is ridiculous.


You have never gotten cut but shrapnel from a exploding plastic chair in a FLGS in which th super fat and sweaty gamer was sitting in. The force of the explosion I think ripped the fabric of space/time because my dice rolling has sucked balls ever since the "incident".

My old FLGS had a guy that would come around, and just hang out (I had never seen him play a game). He was a laaaaaaaaarge man, we're talking like 400 pounds of nerd. His nickname was Chicken and he had his own designated chairs that he could sit in while he was there. These were folding chairs that he had sat in previously and they would begin to bend the other way. So if you sat down and got a weird chair, you had a chicken chair...

Ive had two really BAD times inside a LGS. One was a game i played with a guy who was in the SPEC OP's. He was on leave and from the UK. He had spent a goo amount of time going over his codex and making list while stationed. We played and it did not go so good for him, he couldnt understand why he lost and was very very pissed. He looked at the table and back at me over and over again. He looked mad as hell. He started to pick his minis off the table and threw them into his case. He ranted on about he didnt understand how he didnt win. He came back in after he put his things into his car and walked right up to me. He told me next week same time bring this list and im going to destroy you! It also didnt help his wife was FINE!! And the whole time we played I was shooting the ... with her. He used SW and i used some closet orks i had.


Second time i was at a LGS and it was FNM. I noticed this heavy set guy getting very angry at the girl he was playing. I guess she pulled a card that does not let you get past 1 life. He threw his cards in her face and decked her right in the face. He knocked her out and started to put his cards back into his "pokemon" back pack and threw her cards in there aswell. I was the only one who seen what happend as the place was packed and they where sitting in the very back at a table for just them in the GW section. I was more in shock at what happened then running over to assist. Once i snapped out i made my way over there and put him into standing choke. Until the store manager came to the back and seen the girl on the floor crying and me chocking the guy out.


TOTALLY AWESOME! That sounds like a rocking store! I love how the story ends with you choking out the fat guy while the girl is laying on the ground unconscious.


Due to past life Experience , NEVER touch an unconscious girl/women.

There was a guy at my old gw who when his tac squad was killed in a game punched a hole in the wall and started yelling at random people in the store. He picked up a kid and sang row row your boat as he danced with him. And that is the top of a very long list of things that Steve did.

He was taken away by the police. After he was incredibly racist and went insane and kept shouting "I need my pills. They need to be nice to me I have problems". He later wasn't allowe in the store unless he was with a parent or had a police escort. He was 24 at the time. Also he wasn't allowed to wear tanktops in the store. Due to his wookie arms.

How does one "readjust selfs moobs" to drive a F350? Do you put your arms over them and FORCE them down? Do you simple put your arms in bettween them?

He is so big that the steering wheel rests againt the top of his gut and the moobs get stuck in the void betwen the wheel and the colum. He has to move one to the side before he could turn as he backed out of the space.

So....lol to make a right turn he has to hit the turn signal adjust a moob then grab the wheel and turn, hoping his hand doesnt hit the other mood? I guess he hates sharp turns! What a PITA he should trade it in for a juiced up hoverround.

When I was still learning about deodorant(like 10ish) and didn't realize that I was the smelly one at the store that smelled like BO.

That was embarrassing. Thinking back on it now, no one else ever smelled.

Worst experience I ever had was during a Magic tournament, after the cut to Top 8 I was seeded 2nd and playing seed 1. He was the local TFG. I politely asked him if he chose to shuffle my deck, I would only allow pile shuffling. It is within the rules to specify how an opponent handles your cards. He said nothing, looked me dead in the eyes, and bridge shuffled my $1000 deck. He looked surprised and made a huge scene about how i was cheating and in collusion with the TO when I had a judge eject him...

I can stand being yelled at and called all kinds of names, but I draw the line at mistreating cards/minis that have significant emotional and financial value.

Utilizing Careful Highlighting

Hmm there used to be a regular MtG player that frequents our store. He looks about 14-16 and extremely awkward, and he is always accompanied by a 40-ish woman who we assumed is his mother. She buys him the cards and encourages us to play with his son. So we find that a bit weird because he's a teenager and he can speak for himself but we're nice people so we had games with him. It was a bit awkward playing with him because the mother watches intently while you play but it's something minor that we can shrug off and they seem nice enough.

Fast forward a few months, we learned from him that they're not a mother and son pair. She's actually his lover, and she buys cards for him in exchange for favors. Things went from a little awkward to very awkward from that point on.

At my old FLGS a guard player was playing in the 'ard boys, when his vendettas missed on all their shots ( 6 TL las Cannons) He the proceeded to pick them up and spike them into the floor....

The other time was when I got nominated to tell one of the people in the store ( he is a regular) that he stinks ( never wore deodorant and didn't shower regularly). My friends logic? "You the only one able to be an ass and not care" I wasn't awkward because I was called an ass, but because before I told the guy he had a BO problem he asked if I wanted to play a league game and then threw a fit when I said " Sure, two things need to happen first. 1) go home and shower, use soap. And 2) Use deodorant, You smell and that is why no one is playing you." Keep in mind this is after the store owner and others tried dropping hints like, who stinks....did everyone shower and wear deodorant this morning? for a few weeks.

Cheers.

That's what I wanted to know. After reading the story, my 1st thought was "Was she hot?". But I can see it being awkward if you originally thought they were mother and son.

This is possibly the weirdest post of anything on any website ever that I have ever read. It went from little girls getting decked, to moobs, to banging cougars. I don't really have any weird stories but I always feel weird walking into a GW and realizing that while you can't even drive yet... you somehow have more personal hygiene than almost everybody else there. There are like 5 other people there that I can even hold a conversation with because of nose picking, screaming, nerdgasms, and guys who have obviously never had any female interaction in their life but still try to convince you that they "pull bitches". Hopefully not everybody has to deal with that.... -Feasible
