That seems grossly unfair. They get away scot-free for creating the situation? Fuck that.

They weren't raising their voices: I was. It was actually a pretty brilliant tactic to act as upset as they did, but it merely encouraged each other to keep going. I was the only one taken in. And they actually apologized to me afterwards.

I seriously felt terrible, but we laugh about it now.

Nothing too extreme here. A few years ago, 5 or 6 of us would get together and play games and have a few drinks. We always met at my best friend's house. I can't even remember what we were playing -- maybe Bootleggers -- but one of the guys gets extremely obnoxious when he has too much to drink. My friend was having a rough night and the guy was just giving him all kinds of shit.

My friend stood up, lowered his shoulder, hit the guy like a full-on tackle in the gut, put him over his shoulder and carried him up the stairs and out of his house. Came back in and finished his turn.

Every year Game Towne in San Diego has Game Fest. Used to be a big deal, got pretty lame in the last 10 or so years and dwindled to about 15 store regulars attending. A mix of RPGs, minis wargames, and a group of guys that play euros from store opening until they get told to leave around midnight. Not normal people playing those euros, the worst case scenario of really fat (save one) old guys wearing the same t shirts with dragons on them that they wore last year at Game Fest. They only played with each other and nobody ever wanted in on their games. You only saw most of them at Game Fest. The one skinny guy that played those euros (who was married to a regular at that store- a charming balding woman who would stand behind you when you were playing games and talk about how bad the game you were playing was, sometimes for hours but that's another story) was obviously getting riled during some euro that had cards involved. He got louder and louder until he threw his cards and yelled at the top of his lungs "DON'T TELL ME HOW TO PLAY! DON'T TELL ME HOW TO PLAY!" and ran out of the building. It was pretty fucking weird. He was not seen again during Game fest which was unusual since I think that little gathering was a high point of his life. Come to think of it those eurogame guys always had at least one meltdown every year but that was the best one.

That same year me and a friend staged a fake meltdown that we planned out ahead of time and culminated in me yelling "DON'T TOUCH MY DICE MIKE! I'LL FUCK YOU UP!". It went pretty well, lots of freaked-out looking game players when we did it, but the store employees didn't know the other guy very well and were getting ready to throw him out. He had to come get me so I could tell the employees it was a joke. Ah, Game Fest.

I bought my first Player's Handbook at Game Towne. I still love going when I'm in town, though it's lost a lot of it's magic since I was 6.

I'm posting one preemptively:

At WBC 2012 Loter saw Weeks playing Dune, while standing over the table to see better. Loter ran up and Gorilla fucked him while the Bene Gesserit player correctly predicted Weeks was secretly enjoying the Gom Jabbaring he was receiving. Loter wiped his dick off on the tablecloth and strolled on in his Snow White outfit while sipping on spiced rum.

Weeks tried to stand, but was too weak. Just then, Scott Nicholson walks by and said to him, "God created Arrakis to Train the faithful. One cannot go against the word of God" just before plowing balls deep into him...thereby completing the "training" of the faithful.

and Weeks wept, but tears of joy.

I've had more meltdowns than I can count. What?! I get like that sometimes! I'll always be on my best behavior around anyone I meet from this site, because I don't want to look like an ass- but my friends wait for that moment when I lose my shit with great impatience.

Two years ago we where playing 4 player Crokinole in the gaming library at Gencon and me and my team mate where in the process of getting our asses handed to us for the fifth time in a row. At one point I just lost it, grabbed the board and shook the living fuck out of it, and stormed out of the library. My friends were pissing themselves laughing, not only because of what just happened, but because they knew for a fact that had the library not been as full as it was I would have launched that motherfucker discus style.

At Trashfest 2 Me, Josh Look, Loter, Ken and fucked if I can remember who else, where playing a game of CIToW. Now Josh starts up with this whole Honey Badger shit. "The Honey Badger don't give a fuck Billy!" and "OOoo he's eating larva -that's so nasty!"That's when I just out and ask him what the fuck he's talking about, and he gives me this whole spiel about how the Honey Badger has got this rubbery skin that's hard as fuck to pierce, and that's been known to be almost impervious to spears, arrows, and small calibre ammo. At this point everyone but me is snickering, because I was the only one to have never seen the Honey Badger video on you tube, and I'm starting to get just a little fucking pissed because unbeknownst to Josh I was going through a crazy rough time and went to Trashfest to unwind, and here I have this tall, babyfaced, gangly limbed, smartass fucking with me. I swear I seriously considered slapping the shit out of Josh Look.

At one point, Josh went to get something to drink and I straight up told Loter: "Is Josh fucking with me or what? I swear I gonna slap that fucking kid!"

Matt tells this story best. The funny thing is that I really like Josh--- but still... FUCK JOSH LOOK!

Didn't realize we had so many San Diego locals (or former locals in Loter's case, apparently) in the AT. Is Game Towne the one in Old Town? I think I went in there once, got creeped out, and never went back. Game Empire ain't great but it'll do for most things, and At Ease up in Poway is good. I didn't know there was a "con" or whatever one would call it there, either...

Oh damn I remember that shit. It was epic. He was doing it perfectly too "Oh, that sooooo nasty" ROFL. That shit was classic, and you could see the steam coming off of you. I was sitting on the side couch playing Epic Duels with Scott and others while Avery was crooning about being in the Chaostle snakepit for two hours.

What a time.

I'm not going to do any work myself, but I am going to take advantage of the work of others and direct you to Ameritrash legend Robert Martin's geeklist "Games Where Some Guy Just Totally Flipped Out."

It has to be fun to watch when it happens. But never have seen it.
