In the course of life we do many things, some of which we are proud of, some not, and some just are part of life. Here are some polls to see if any of our fellow Geeks have done any of the same things.

Feel free to add your own question or poll.

Geekgold Prize:bag
Since giving Geekgold seems to be the thing these days, and I have way too much GG, I will give 10 GG to two random people that add at least one thumb and one comment to this list.

Prizes to be awarded on Monday January 14th.

Congratulations to: BielTann and Findus for winning the 10 GG prizes.

I was playing a game of backgammon in a tournament with a friend years ago and was way ahead. He finished the game with 5 consecutive doubles to win by one piece which allowed him to advance in the tournament. He said many times after later that he felt guilty.

Poll
Have you ever felt guilty for winning a game? If so, why?
What? Guilty? Never!!!
Only when I beat my kids.
Once or twice.

I needed a game for a gift last year. I did not have time to get it from the online seller but it was $45 cheaper online. So, I went to the FLGS and purchasd the game and the same day ordered it online. I gave the store copy to my friend, waited for the Online copy, and returned it to the store. The next question will ask about the morality of the act. This question is if you have ever done the same thing.

Not a problem, they should be more price competitive.
Okay when you are in a pinch.
Not good, but not as bad as stealing.
Reprehensible, I can't believe anyone would do such a thing.

Some games our group plays last several weeks. Occasionally a game is very consuming mentally. One particular game of Empires in Arms would keep me awake for hours after we finished for the session, thinking about strategies, what I had done wrong, and what others may be planning.

I've always felt like I wanted to repay someone for something bad they did to me in a past game, but I've always been able to compartmentalize my feelings and keep my head focused only on that game. I can't say the same for some of my friends.

Have you ever "gotten someone back" in a game for something they did to you in another game?

My main playing group is my kids. I love playing with them, I really hope they will be smarter than me when adult. So why do I feel so frustrated when my 12 years old flattens me playing Caylus, Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, and recently Seasons ?

Poll
Have you ever felt like an idiot losing to your kid(s) in a Euro game ?
Never, coz I always win.
Never, I know my kid(s) is(are) smarter than me.
Everytime ... I am definitely not smarter than a 5th grader.
Not really, but can we play another game next time? Daddy(Mummy) doesn't like the theme

I love to discuss with other customers at my FLGS, and chat about games and mechanics. Once in while, I try to recommend games that I liked. There was this guy who loved the Game of thrones books and show, so I pitched A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, I even proposed him to play together to teach him. Instead of trying first, he bought it, did not like it and try to sell it back to me since I recommended to him.

Poll
Have you ever convinced someone to buy a game, that they did not like ?
I would not dare recommend a game, too much responsibility.
Never, I am so good I should open my own FLGS.
Rarely, I can see through people's heart !
Often but getting better at it.
Always. WHY do people have different tastes than me ??

I play a lot of card games where rules are actually on the cards. This very often leads to confusion and different interpretation (most of these games have FAQ longer than my arm ).

Poll
Have you ever intentionally interpreted a confusing rule to work in your favour ?
Yes, since I am the one reading and teaching rules, I am the GOD of rules.
No, I always check the Geek when confusing rules pop up.
No, in doubt I will favour opponents.
No, but I know someone who does.
Sometimes, and I am ashamed of it,..., NOT.

I introduced Lords of Waterdeep to a group of friends, one of them had been a Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Battlesystem fan in his youth. Since we started on the rules then later on while playing, he kept sniggering, making rude comments about the theme, the cubes, ... So I decided to stop it and we played another game.


Poll
Have you ever intentionally spoiled everyone's pleasure to play a game by constantly complaining about [lack of theme, shabby rules, poor components, crappy gameplay,...], that the game was prematurely ended?
No, when I play, I play. Comments are for after.
A few times only, but the games were really that bad.
I strike preemptively even before game is chosen.
Only when the game is going to become hours of torture.

When my game collection grew over 100 games + expansions, and the cupboards were overflowing, my wife asked me : "but how much do these games cost ? Don't you have enough of them ?" My survival instinct took over and I answered : "slightly less that 1 of your pair of shoes". "Ah, ok", and she never asked again, as she has an ever growing pile of shoes

Poll
Have you ever lied to your second half about the price of a game?
Never, I always tell.
Never, since he/she knows better than to ask.
Nope, it is my money, I do what I want.
Once in a while, but I had to get this game.
Only when the game is more than XX USD.
Yes, I always tell that I got a discounted price.
Yes, he/she would not keep his/her sanity otherwise.
