Are you open about your love for Tabletop RPG's or is it a closely guarded secret maybe only a few of your friends are aware of?
>>
I declare my love for the hobby openly, even trying to grab as many people along the way to join my sessions.

It's a 50/50 shot, but it hasn't ruined any of my friendships (thus far)

Yeah this way of doing things is fun. It's why i have a minimum of 2 mtg decks on me at all times.
>>
I am open about it to people, but to look at me would obviously identify me as a nerd(unfashionable glasses, belt holster for phone, usually shirt or jacket depicting comic or videogame reference), so its not like hiding it would mean any difference.

>belt holster for phone
That exists?

Everything looks weirder if you keep it secret. You could lift or cook in secret and it would be fucking weird.
>>
Board Games: Yes. They're self contained, and if they're good, everyone likes them.
40k, MtG: (When I played them) No. MtG is more acceptable than 40k, probably, but neither of them did I let on about. It didn't seem worth it.
>>
I tell everyone. Friends, family, co-workers, casual acquaintances.

No one's been an ass about it yet. Many don't care for it, but there are other topics of conversation.
>>
A normal opportunity to bring it up doesn't come up often. I don't really hide it, I just don't have a reason often to bring it up anyway, the times I do bring it up, it's around "so nerdy XD" friends that say they'd like to play tabletops or board games, but I find it hard to actually get most to commit. Some do though.

I don't run around the streets screaming it at people, but it's not like it's a secret. If I talk to someone for any length of time it'll probably come up.
>>
>>43103483
I don't declare it for no reason, but if asked my hobbies or whatever, I'll include it.
>>
I got hired by showing my boss the game I made.

I started playing RPGs in the 80's so my friends and I were quiet about it until we were adults. Mainly because of the devil worship scare associated with D&D that some parents would swallow. Here is a classic one from 60 Minutes that made some parents fail their save vs fear roll:

I work in an IT company with mostly late 30s to 40s dudes, everyone here has one.
>>
Semi-open. I'll talk about it if someone asks.
>>
>>43103483

I'm a grown ass man. I'm going to spend my time and money however I choose.

I don't shout it from the roof tops.
But I've had free moments at work so I'd spend some time putting together my campign in spreadsheets.

People ask wqhat Im doing and I tell them.
Turns out a few people used to play when they were younger. Others who haven't go "oh. Cool."

i've gotten away with telling a few stories about my campaigns when it comes up too.

Most people don't really care.
>>
>>43103483

Fairly open. Ended up mentioning it during a job interview.

Got the job, and enjoying it so far.
>>
Open about it, and if someone leaves me for liking rpgs then they're not worth my time. Gladly it hasn't happened yet.
