Helps avoid the buggers.

Even a simple game like Conflict of Heroes also revealed:
- Quick reactions to changing situations: doable but felt 'stretching' in a good sense. (If I had to do that with added social meanings, like in a "job", then I'd "want to climb walls" quickly...). Also a CCG (local here) stretched that a lot.
- Hidden setups: moderately well (including conscious "mixed strategies" and randomness). Some of mine were quite easily predicted, others really surprising and effective.

Any influences you noticed on our own play style ? dislike of shallow 'on the fly' verbal Euro-like rules explanation thought by others to be enough ? reluctance to dive right into a complex card-driven game (e.g. Paths of Glory, Empire of the Sun) to find after some tries one can play well enough ? [I almost got PoG a couple years ago - and almost forgot it by now -, but still stare from the base to the top of that EotS mountain...]

Any experiences with games of 'diplomatic' content - Junta, Vampire: Prince of the City etc ?
How to make the experience less frustrating, and more useful to learn to sort of
survive such situations better in real life ?

This is almost funny. One of my Face To Face game friends Paul said one time in reference to who or what I cannot remember, that he just assumed all Wargamers suffer from at a minimum a sort of borderline Aspergers syndrome. How true this is now that the game community has been uber expanded by computer games I don't know. But it does seem most wargamers are odd ducks on some level. Highly socially dysfunctional I think playing games and hanging out on the internet probably exacerbates rather than ameliorates these problems. OTH probably also makes us less likely to climb into a clock tower with a scoped Manlicher Carcano!

Tony Attwood - Discovery of Aspie: positive criteria

For how much of us is history gaming a really effective relief ?
What do skills in gaming do to help (or hinder ?!?) living effectively out in the Neurotypical world ?
