It’s almost become cliché, but it’s worth repeating: gaming is good for the imagination.
Games in general get the mind working. Roleplaying games trigger the mind’s eye. Miniature wargames often require research, a good eye for painting, and a general knowledge of tactics and strategy.
Lessons and problem solving learned at the tabletop can be applied to the real world.
And you can tell a lot about a person’s personality by how they play these games.
The people you meet at the tabletop can be some of the most brilliant and imaginative people you’ll ever encounter.
So be imaginative. Be creative. Play RPGs and wargames.
