Thread: Games workshop in town.

  1. #1

    Default Games workshop in town.

    Started off well as my kids enjoyed making up some models.....
    but when we was invited back to play the game it went on for 45 minutes.
    What the **** Is it all about as I kep drifting in and out of my coma.


    Come on then, who on here plays it?

    I used to play it when I was 8. Beyond those years it seems to be social suicide, a lot of the people who play it are weird world of warcraft types. I dunno, it's expensive... and boring. When I played in a massive game, I wanted to kill this truck... so I attacked. The guy had to get out like a 500 page rule book to verify whether I had actually blown up this truck. My god, it was boring and slow.

    When I was 11 I built and painted them, but could never be arsed with the game.

    Dune runs the UK Fan Club apparently.

    My only experience of games workshop was egging it and shouting abuse at the geeks when I used to go town. Happy times.

    Never set foot in one of those places, nor had any inclination to paint or play it or whatever they do in there. The impression I get of the sorts that go in there, is that they're either the geeky, skinny and pale kids with long spindly and boney fingers, or fat lumps of lard: the sorts that are no good at football or socialising with normal kids. As they get older the skinny ones start to wear eye liner and long leather coats and grow a stupid beard, and the fat ones just eat burgers and donuts. They probably all then become pedophiles or serial killers.

    Quite possibly, but i'd need to know what the **** you're all talking about to confirm or deny this. I can only assume these are computer games?

    We used to sit in the Royal Oak (Winchester) garden and laugh at them playing late night goonathons (it used to be opposite).

    We popped back to have a look at the games they all play.

    OMFG - Some people were dribbling over this set a bloke had.
    other than the nice person who helped my son and daughter make up models I thought the whole thing was so geek.

    I play, from time to time, (the much less geeky) Talisman with my 8 year old (who thinks it's cool). Actually quite like it. f*** you all!

    Maybe we should start a deppo fan club, but we need to encourage the funny deppo rather than the sarcastic deppo. Sarcastic deppo makes me a sad panda

    You've made a good start by copying his hair style.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone else on this forum would have such an unusual hair style!

    I didn't realise they actually had a format to the games. I assumed they just hung around and admired each others army. Ghey lords

    Even though it IS geeky, i get a little warm glow in my heart every time my Ork Shokk Attack Gun blow away a group of space marines.

    My son was into it a few years ago, I never understood all the rules, I had better fun with two boxes of plastic soldiers, blue Nazi ones and green Commando ones.
    Had to keep an eye on my mate Barry "thieving git"

    My nipper used to go to their Sunday afternoon club and he really enjoyed. I agree that it's not for everyone but some people do enjoy it.

    My 11 year old son has caught the bug and goes most Sundays. His older brother takes him and explains how to play. Trouble is, he has made a wish-list a mile long for his birthday next month.

    I played it when I was a kid and then went that one geeky further step and got into "proper" wargaming - I had both a Gallic and a Carthaginian army. I grew out of that stage by the time I left school. It is a geeky pursuit but then I think adults playing computer games are geeks and it's no more geeky than that.

    Now he's insulting those of us who play computer games. Is there anyone this man won't offend?

    My best mate took up Wargaming, if that's the one where they re-enact famous battle scenarioss, and would take his son along. He moved on to making his own buildings and would painstakingly paint the troops and vehicles, trabanches etc. He is very good at it but I cannot for theblife of me see the attraction. I do however see the attraction of watching 22 grown men kicking a ball around a pitch with many fellow men in a trance-like state so i guess it's just horses for courses and all that...

    gold used to be on my crap and pointless pursuits list but is now not.

    Letting your kids go to Games Workshop is just wrong. It's condoning bullying!
