Re: Teenagers From Outer Space
Yes, I think so, although where does that leave SFBK, my planned Father Ted Fiasco playset and games based on specific progs like Dad's Army or Are You Being Served etc.?
Probably, in the former, you just accept that if players don't like frat house settings (which are pretty obviously going to involve comedic situations) or quirky Irish comedy then they won't play those games. On the other hand, those who do will, so everyone's happy. In the latter, I suppose one could
run the game as a standard 1940s WWII game/game set in a 1970s department store and slyly inject the funnies. Ah no, Dougal, that wouldn't work, would it? No Ted, sure those games would fall flat on their faces. Ok so, back to the previous answer. Ok so, Ted. Goodnight then. Goodnight Dougal. [Switches off light].
Well, that's probably true of all 'social' hobbies, whether gaming, am-dram, French cinema, book groups or whatever, reflecting the spectrum of people's attitudes to life in general, mine being fairly light-hearted (for which I get into trouble on forums sometimes).
