When does competitive gaming cross the line into being "Beardy" or "Cheesy" or "Broken"? I myself play middle of the road. As I recently read on a forum, "I just shoot them all, and charge whats left and let Gork sort them out." That's pretty much how I play, just aggressive enough, not overly competitive. I don't like tourneys because they are too competitive, and you get cheats, and crybabies. So, I play to have fun first, then possibly when if I can pull it out.
Often times when you think about it, the best games are the ones that "Come down to the wire" and are a close call, the one where it comes down to one dice roll. (And without fail, someone will come by and say, "Anything but a..." blowing your chance at victory.) So, to help push a win, some players come up with really hard "combos".
One of which I read recently, was to put Ghazakul, in with Snikrot and his boys, add in Mad Doc Grotsnik for an added bonus. All of which pop up on a table edge where you want them. So, imagine the look on your opponents face when Ghazzy, accompanied by Snikrot, and a bunch of Cybork crazed Kommandos appear behind his lines. And its perfectly legal...ethical, not so much, but it is legal. (NOTE: I would only use this on my worst enemy.)
So, have you ever used a "beardy" combo? If so, what was it? How did your opponent react?
