I've been seeing a strange behavior that I don't understand. It seems to only happen with somewhat older players.
When they have paper money in a game, they slide it partway under the edge of the game board. Where is this behavior coming from? Is there a game that teaches it?
I've asked, and they've said it's just what you're supposed to do in board games. It's particularly disconcerting when the board is modular and being explored during the game, or when lifting the board to slide your money under it causes pieces to be knocked over.
I've even seen players lose money this way, money that gets slid too far under the board and isn't discovered until we're cleaning up.
Is there a clear, understandable reason for this?
