Things Not to Say …

“You would think the women would demo the good games.”

We’ve been demoing our upcoming card game, Paparazzi! at GenCon this week. Someone actually said the above quote to one of our demo team people, when he asked her about the game and she described it as “the game of trash-celebrity culture” [the game’s standard tagline] to him.

Would a simple “Hey, that doesn’t sound like my thing.” not have worked just as well, and not pre-judged something that he had yet to play?

Gen Con has been awesome this year, but some interactions really leave me wondering what people hope to gain from them.
