While I enjoy playing Board games. It's usually more fun to Win than lose. But there are some games out there that losing is just as much fun if not more so.

Add that game that you have a blast just losing with style.

Win or lose, who cares. Let's play again.

Maybe switch sides and play the same scenario? What the heck, that way we don't have to dig out new units.

Win or lose this game lives or dies on how you play it. I think I actually like losing more than winning as long as I can be dastardly when I do it.

I'll try my best to win the scenario's in this game (or any other in the Musket & Pike-series). But even if I'm losing, I still enjoy seeing how the battle unfolds, feel tension with every die roll, enjoy finding out how the different troop types interact and how to employ them in the best possible way.

I have a blast playing this whether I win or lose badly. If I'm not in a position to win by the mid-game, it is almost more fun to overtake a man-o-war and start hunting players. I may not be the winning pirate, but I'll be the most dangerous son of a sea-dog on these waters!

I have not played a lot yet...

But with this kind of games, where interaction is indirect with your opponents, i'm not let down if i lose and the fun is always there.

Others, like my favorite: Twilight Imperium 3, i still have a tremendous amount of fun. But when i lose, i always think to myself i should've done better...
This feeling doesn't happen with Puerto Rico (so far).

I have done some theoretical work on Can't Stop, and know the crapping-out probabilities very well, but I win much less often than I should, for reasons having to do with the name. The most fun I can have is to amass a huge gain in a single even if I lose it all by crapping out.
