    Default I Hate Board Games

    They drive me nuts.

    I realized this in depth on my gap year program, I knew this before from playing with my family, and I have learned that even when round a table full of some of my best friends (incidentally, but not purposefully all xNxx types) I can't hack it.

    I just wish people would be more on top of the game and not hold it back. In effect, be more efficient players. And yes, I realize the paradox that the whole point is to enjoy your time with others.

    I just can't hack it. I confessed this hatred to my eNFJ friend the other night when reflecting on our latest game of Settlers (with an INTP, INFP, ENFP) and she pretended to sympathize with me while really giggling on the inside.

    Perhaps you just haven't played the right games the right way. Me and my friends used to play Monopoly with massive amounts of deal making that went well beyond the actual rules. Have you ever played a game like Risk? Very strategic.

    I love board games. Especially the ones I own everybody on like "The 90's game" but even the games I suck at are fun. Other great ones are Sorry, Clue, Milles Bornes, Scrabble, and of course, Chutes and Ladders.

    I hate Monopoly because I never win.

    I love competition. The only times I get annoyed with the people I'm playing with is when they get all dopey and unsure for some reason. I don't mind playing to have fun, but I can't stand defeatist attitudes and warm bodies. I especially don't like it when people play when they actually don't want to...what the hell.

    I agree, except I refer to them as "bored games."

    Risk, Diplomacy, and games like that are fun, but I can only tolerate/have time to play something like that about once every 2 years or so.

    It feels like a contrived way of spending time with people, so I tend not to play them for those purposes.

    There are very few games I legitimately like, but my non-competitiveness keeps me from taking them seriously when I play with other people.

    So yeah.

    And on computer/video games, I like cooperative style games the best. But that's just me.

    I don't really like board games either.

    I can see how playing board games (even strategic ones) would be boring without competitive people, but maybe the problem is just who you're playing with, rather than the game itself.

    Mmm, yeah that's the ticket...I do like board games, but don't play them that often.
