I found that there is are not many tags that relate to around the table issues that do not directly relate to the game. I asked this question, but found myself at disadvantage when choosing appropriate tags. Is there a tag or multiple tags that would be used for issues around the table that are related to things like:

  • location, ambience, lighting, furniture,
  • refreshments, spirits, snacks,
  • breaks, distractions, "background" noise
  • techniques for setting up the game in an efficient manner,
  • distributing props, handouts
  • dealing with conflicts over metagame and pre-game or post-game discussions

I have found the following tags, but they only partially relate to the above:

For preparation, doppelgreener's suggestions of  and  are good.

For social stuff, we have and particularly for lack of experience, and and for problematic interaction at the table. and  could be appropriate for excess strategy discussions at the table (and when it's not in excess).

For keeping the game fluent, there's , but that seems to be a very unused tag and there are a lot of questions that have neglected tagging it.

For background music, there's but it seems to be very scarcely used too.


I can't find one myself, and none comes to mind. We do have , but not stuff for ambience and so on, breaks and snacks, and etc. We have too, but that's pre-game stuff.

What you've described is pretty broad though (especially when you throw in metagame conflicts and discussions), and might not be well served by just one tag for the whole lot.
