Here are a list of polls about some of the odd things we as gamers do. Or at least some of us. Do you clip your counters, pitch your inserts, buy all expansions, even if they suck? Let us know. Have a question you want to know about, add it, or let me know and I will.

Some geeks call it being a Completist. I think this is a made up word. But as it is, some people buy all expansions to a game, just because they are published. Are you a Completist? I am a completist only with games I really like.

Poll
Are you a Completist?
I buy all expansions to games I own
I buy all expansions to games I really like
I only buy expansions that I believe will improve the game
I don't buy many expansions

Do you count the chits, pieces, cards, etc. after (or before) every game to see if they are all there, or you don't bother?

Poll
Do you count the chits, pieces, cards, etc?
I don't care, really. If it turns out I lost something, I'll replace it somehow
Only after a game where a few pieces fell on the floor during the play
I count the chits and stuff every time! Sometimes a few times over (to be sure nothing was lost)

Other people can ruin your game through carelessness. Do you keep food and drink away from your games when playing?

Poll: Food & Drink
Do you allow food or drink near your games?
No.
Drinks only in closed bottles or on the floor
Closed drinks and non-greasy food only
Anything is okay.

You can have a card or two up in your sleeve, but what about 150 or 500? Card sleeves are every gamer's friends. IMO, there are only people who're alredy using card sleeves, and those who haven't started doing it yet I think I've seen a poll like that in another thread, but it suits this list well.

Poll
Do you sleeve the cards in your games?
Yes! I sleeve every card in every game I have. I don't want your germs on my cards!
If a game has many cards, I sleeve them all up, even if I don't play this game too often
I sleeve cards only in games I play regularly, regardless of the number of cards in it
Nah! Card sleeves are for dummies! I hate those sticky cards!
