I am not talking about variable power games. I am talking about the games you play where you are sure everyone is using their own "win" conditions for the game, regardless of what is printed in the box.

This is the prototypical game that I have played in college with friends (4 player style)
- Player 1 - you know what I think will be awesome, winning by mostly building from the development card (aka I would rather buy a lotto ticket guys, lets play something else)
- Player 2 - Golly, player (1,3,or 4) is cute, maybe if I play really nice with them they will notice me (aka the flirt)
- Player 3 - I think I might have a change at this game, now all I need is a few cunning trades to win (aka the only person actually playing the game)
- Player 4 - you know what, I dont want player X to win, or I will use these road tokens to keep track of unfavorable trades then use them to fuel my vendetta turns (aka "Anyone want 6 iron for 1 wheat?, okay here you go, oh right monopoly on iron guys")

My opponent's goal is to actually achieve the objective of the scenario or win the match. My goal is only to blow up Han Solo, who cares what else is on the field.

My son brings guns to the new world. Lots of guns. Life expectancy of other nationalities' colonists is not very long.

In my group there is always 2 guys that put 0 thought into setting up for a corner and they typically don't finish the first lap. Unfortunate that they take a game that has very limited player elimination and then run themselves out of the race.

Too often, my son's goal is to destroy my wife's armies and take her territories, regardless of how much it profits him. She has to fight back, of course, leaving me to scoop up victory coins freely.

He's getting better, though.

Also known as: any game where you take an action that upsets Angela. As far as she's concerned, after that, the only important goal is how much she makes you regret your foolishness...

Okay, I'm not playing it, but odds of getting two+ people at the same board playing the same rules is pretty slim.

Occasionally someone* will forgo the standard pursuit of victory and opt to instead optimize an unusual combo deck to the best of their ability. One such highlight was the daring attempt to make Scout a competitive card, for example.


*Me. It's always me.
