Not sure I agree that you're not a gamer unless you play tabletop games though. But that might be because i have never heard the word "gamer" until a few years ago and it's always been related to computer games.
I probably only feel that way because we were calling our selves gamers before computer games were an option and home video games consisted of Pong or an Atari 2600 at best. Learning complicated rules, carrying strange dice, and spending hours around hex maps carried a social stigma as well.
Aha! Well then I can see what you mean. It's all about terminology. If that is the right word.
