    Unfair players.. What should be done

    The reason I am writing this thread is... One member of our local gaming group is a blatent cheat. Although he cheats, he does it in a way, that should we call him out, we would embarass him/her and feel sorry for the old fool. For the simple fact that he is about 10 years our senior, and a really good friend.

    I was just wondering if anyone has had the same trouble before and if anyone knows how to go about stopping this, before he comes across one of the more violence inclined players that we often see tarnish our beloved games.

    Oh! the "cheating" that is done is simple little things such as... magic casting values, wrong weapon skills/strength/toughness...etc....

    Just be polite about it, if he has his army book/codex/rulebook with him then just ask him to double check stuff occasionally. He's probably not doing it on purpose. You could also encourage the use of (anti-)cheat sheets, listing the more often used statlines/spells for an army.

    Agreed. Download, print off and familiarise yourself with the reference sheets, there should be some sites out there with info about the spells and lores, and the like. If you suspect something, call the guy on it! I mean, if he's silly/desperate enough to cheat, it's his own fault if he gets caught and embarrassed. I'm sorry if it sounds a bit harsh, but if it's bad enough that it's become a problem, there's not a lot you can do.

    Hi all.
    As I game with older players ,we often have 'senior moments' where we forget stuff-get it wrong.

    And no one takes offence if we ask 'can you double check that ?'

    Politley asking to check facts will have the following effect.
    If this chap is cheating he will stop.
    If he has a poor memory he will apreciate the reminders !

    TTFN

    Exactly. Call him on it. Do it politely, but definitely call him on it. If he's doing it by accident (happens to the best of us), it will only take so many reminders of that particular stat before it sinks in. If he's not doing it by accident, then don't let him guilt-trip you into letting him cheat.

    Ultimately, if you're dead certain he's cheating and doesn't care, stop playing him. Plain and simple. This is supposed to be a fun way to spend an afternoon with a handful of dice and more than a handful of plastic and metal men you've spent hours painting (and more money than you care to mention buying). It's not worth letting him ruin your fun.
