"Make sure your partner knows the score." I realize the point after this statement are valid and very well put, but damn. This sounds like it needs "then tell them to go make you a sandwich" after it.

Really? Being up front with your partner/spouse/etc... about scheduling gaming time is like telling them to shut up and make you a sandwhich? Trust me, much better to establish ground rules for when it's ok to play and when not up front as opposed to just assuming.Also, this is not the 1950's

Ostentataneous, you are taking it as if the gamer is ordering his/her partner around. It's just shorthand for communicate and coordinate. Also, it is a gender neutral statement, so misogynistic interpretations are a bit of a stretch.

I know that's not what you were implying. It's just I've never heard the phrase "know the score" used when it didn't have negative connotations. I was only commenting on that fact. I know all about the importance of communicating and coordinating in regards to play time. I have a 17 month old girl who I watch while my wife is at work and she watches while I am at work. This usually limits my playtime to only at night once she has gone to bed and usually once my wife has gone to bed too. My wife does let me take one night a week to play early so that I can raid.

So your wife knows the score then. See how easy that is? Absolutely nothing negative about that statement at all. And knowing is half the battle.
