I agree with you entirely.  I too know many many gamers who prefer to have a beer or three while gaming.  I also kind of laughed when someone said something about alcohol inhibiting the mental function required to play and enjoy games.  I immediately thought that I could just as easily win at Fluxx as tipsy as can be. :lol:  Several of the LL games could easily be enjoyed very inebriated because they aren't huge brain burners.

drinking gamers where you are.  Maybe it's an area

with drinking.

The point of a strategy game, or any game for that
matter, is not about a "mental challenge" so much as
it is socializing and having a great time.  Both of
those things are something I tie greatly to drinking.
No, alcohol need not be present to have a good time,
but I hardly see it as something to inhibit said

Especially in the case of role playing games do I see
alcohol as a great boon.  People let loose those
roleplaying inhibitions when they have a pint or two
and are much more relaxed and worry a lot less about
looking or sounding silly when they speak and act in

Ora, lege, lege, lege, relege, labora et invenies.
