Other halfs and Glory

Post by Jason on Sun May 13, 2012 1:45 pm

Something a bit more light hearted... Smile

How do your other halfs react to Glory? do they see it as a bit like a bloke having a shed? (something to hide in); do they see it as something a little bit sad? or do they take an interest?

Mine seems to take an interest and always seems upset I'm not going around invading everyone Very Happy

My wife is very understanding, and appreciates, because of my love of history that this is great escapism for me. My daughter is always asking the same questions....

"How do you win?"
"When does it end?"
"Why play a game that you dont know how to win it, or when its going to end"

Not being able to truly answer the question "how do you win?" might be the main reason I seem to get myself into such a mess ! Very Happy

My wife is a gamer. I met her at a D&D game first year of university.

She laughs, but she completely understands.

Mrs Regor says that as Ive been doing it since she met me its just part of me. Could be worse I could have chosen am dram. LoL.

I'd dispute the choice concept though....

And of course this 'aged itch' enables me to study other areas; music, archeology, history, geography and all the rest which I think she enjoys....

And unlike the shed I don't have to go outside. I'm still available for tea making etc...

I have been playing game 3 since 1989; married, divorced and new partner accept it is a hobby I love.

Also the chance to see the odd sight such as the Hapsburg palace in Budapest and Vauban fortress.

Perhaps my son will join in about 10 years!

Bit like Haspsburg...though not as long ago as 1989...and no son...but am sometimes concerned the other half might want to join in...but she's a life-long gamer so...
