Once, I was sitting in a hotel lobby and had to wait that the cab finally arrives, so I took my macbook and used the time to look at my worlds. For the people around me it looks like I would sit there to play a wargame while my kids were running around me and my husband had hard times to make them not to break anything.

Well you can imagine how the people looked at me :D

Where have you played and how was the reaction of the people around you?

No one looked at me in any special way, but they were honking and yelling :D

I got a call during the WIND era, and I parked right there on the Freeway and was moving squads sitting in my car. I had a USB Dongle, so I could connect XD. I was driving home, and I had to stop cuz it was wartime :D

On new years eve some guy attacked me right in the the middle of the party so I "managed the music" on the computer. My girlfriend knew exactly what I was doing so at 11:55 unplugged the computer so I'd actually spend 12:00 with her. I got a lot of funny looks when the music cut out 5 minutes before midnight though -.-

the ppl in my country don't speak English that much, so whenever I play BD in a public place they just look and see me chatting in English and have a "oh he's awesome" face

I have had that one a lot..

I think one of my worst times was playing BD while giving a presentation. It was on M1 and I was in the worst war of my life, had to do a ton of stuff every tick.

On top of that.. Been playing BD while in the bath, in trains, in busses, on a bench just outside uni ( :lol: ), on holiday, while having group meetings.

Oh, this one is pretty bad as well. I was on my bike riding home, and there were about.. 10 minutes left in the tick, I think. Still had 15 minutes to cycle back home if I really really had to get home quick. Then I got called to get online (for E1 back then). So I quickly thought.. And headed over to my secondary school which was 5 minutes away. Still remembered their password, luckily, and logged in. With 3 minutes to go I managed to check Skype to see what it was about..

And turned out there were 4 OPs for me to take.

So worth it :D

U-oh...school

This reminds me *sigh*
My son had a new teacher. An older, nice lady and she asked him:

"what are your parents doing?"
He: "My mom has her own worlds. Sometimes she has to ban people so they smoke red and when she had released all relics, she makes havoc."
She: "You better tell the truth. Next one please!"

As player, I remember a situation where I had to call my teammate for launching his squads to a relic. Unfortunately he was driving and his wife picked up (after I texted him already before)
She yelled at me in russian language for like 5 minutes. I am not sure how he calmed her down, but he made it in time !
