B = Blogging wargammer (or SM = Social Media). This is a wargamer who is not satisfied with a simple victory punch, but instead must let the world know of the minutiae of their clever strategy. Typical are screen shots/photos of the game in different stages, and abstract discussions of the superiority of their plans.


I can't replicate my search for the photo in category A. I do note that a search of google images with "weirdo" and "wargame" produce 5 prestags.com images in the top 25 (!)


I was thinking category B for bored wargamer, but I can't reconcile this with SM. Perhaps brave wargamer (aka sado-masochistic)who plays wargames at the risk of severe reprimands and punishments from the better half.


I just tried a search for "super nerd wargamer" and did not get the aforementioned image. I did get the Prestags post about Battle of the Five Armies (Tolkien) about 100 in. We are not blogging hard enough.

Interestingly, "IPCC wargame" did get us twice in the top 20, with the Battle of Lepanto and me bike riding around Lake Burley Griffin, with another 8 in the top fifty, none about the very real threat of Climate Change. I have to ponder the meaning of this, but it suggests that both Paul and I have failed to make a strong impression on Google. Then again, it is science that matters, not opinion.


I believe I need to bring my guitar (with a Bob Dylan song book) and some of Jordan's sleeveless shirts to complete the set.

I suggest there should be one more category: B, or perhaps SM. Anyone want to guess what that category is?
