Really interesting, thanks. I think you do the best interviews I’ve heard.
When someone’s bloviating at a fellow gamer, I find it hard to tell (particularly with someone I don’t know) whether I should jump in in their defence. I think the functional minimum is not to go along with that kind of talk, and maybe get involved if it persists and the target doesn’t seem to be happy with it. Fortunately it’s very rare among the boardgamers I meet.
Thank you. We both thought this was a really wonderful interview, so it’s nice to hear others feel the same.
It’s hard to say how best to deal with this sort of situation. As you say, it depends on the group, which might enjoy certain types of table talk. If it’s people who know each other, then they will probably have set their own standards. In an open gaming situation where people don’t know each other, it’s quite different though and certain behaviour simply mustn’t be tolerated.
