It is known that random hugging is just a thing Pinkie-player does.

To those of you that have one, what does your girl/boyfriend or husband/wife think about Table Top games.

Me:I'm single, so N/A

Well, we're both players currently.

She tolerated Pathfinder but is loving World of Darkness and wants to run Call of Cthulu.

Basically, she likes table top games but doesn't like complicated ones like Pathfinder or DnD. Loves story crafting ones but is self conscious about role playing.

I just got my wife to start trying D&D for a game I'm running. It's not my wife's favourite, but she's enjoyed it. She does tend to start running out of steam after about 2.5 to 3 hours.

She actually does like table top games generally, and really <i>really</i> loves Unstable Unicorns.

Unstable Unicorns is the best. My fiance and I love playing it.

We got Unstable Unicorns for our 7 year old. Really should have read the box first.....

The discussion of birthdays came up and I told her that birthdays should be frivolous. She told me that birthdays should be fertile so we could have more baby unicorns.

The missus needed a few minutes to recover after that

My husband and I DM games for each other. We met via a LARP. Gaming (of any form) is a big part of our relationship.

My fiancé is the GM.

I feel like, in 2019, this question kind of fails to grasp just how far tabletop gaming has come in terms of widespread societal exposure and acceptance.

Not everybody plays with their partners, though. I’d want to play with mine, if I had one, but not everybody feels the same way, just like not all couples play board/video games together.

It is worth noting, though, that almost every answer here referred to people who play together.

Well said.
This is 2019. Female gamers aren't a rarity, just like gamers aren't socially awkward losers that live in their parents basement. Both my boardgame gang and Pen&Paper groups are roughly 50/50.

We have Pathfinder night every week at our place. She's the GM.

My fiance was one of my DMs, but is now a fellow player.

Currently my wife and I have played a couple of games and she wants to play more, but it's hard to find some people to play with that we trust. Trying to get a family group going, been hard nailing down a time. Usually stuff...

My wife was into online roleplaying waayyy back before she met me. (Got herself installed as the Klingon Empress back in the early days of Prodigy). She gave it up when she went to college, since it was eating up way too much of her time. It was a bit of a challenge getting her into tabletop. She's not totally into it, but it's a way for us to socialize that works for us both.

Her (much older) sister's a different story. She actually knew the kid who got murdered in that case back in the 80s that set off the whole "D&D panic," and she really bought into the idea that the game was at fault. It's one of several things we just don't talk about at family gatherings.

That's a very interesting claim. I started roleplaying during that panic (Call Of Cthuhlu, of all games) and had quite a few talks with worried parents, social service and police during the time I ran a weekly LARP with 40-80 participants, so I'm pretty sure I know the actual facts.

There's the case of a guy who killed his father and some teen suicides, all unsuccessfully linked to D&D, but I've never heard of a kid being murdered.

I'd love to know what murder you're referring to.

I like random hugging too! But I realize not everyone does, so I ask before doing it. ...Unless it is online/in a chat, as that should not spark any traumas/dislikes/whatever.

And I'm ace and aro, so n/a for the SO.

If you ask it's not random.
