While pondering an upcoming Saturday game, I realized winning this event meant very little to me. As a very competitive player, this suprised me, and inspired this List. Who or what else inspires you to lose (or not win)?

This is it. The ONLY game I own which I don't mind losing. As long as I can shoot my mouth off in the Galactic Senate (and build a few WarSuns), I'm a happy man.

There have been times where I played this game just to create a neat looking map. Sometimes I even win when I do it too!

I am horrid at this game. I have never won. I have lost big time. I love the game. I love the experience.

Especially Mamma Mia Grande! (with Sole Mio mixed in).

When we played this we had such a fun time just shouting out the names of the characters in mock italian accents, and laughing our <bleeep> off when ever something went horribly horribly wrong for us, that it was fun no matter who won, in fact, I can't remeber who won, or do I really even care.

I play this game because it is a wonderful way to spend time with my girlfriend (all lewd jokes aside) and because it creates a wonderful story every time.

This game is just so great because you can assassinate people with a ninja! NINJA! I always love a good game of "let's beat up Danny because he always starts with the weakest position."

I love it because it's short, fast-paced, and highly interactive. I'm a sucker for a game of auction or blind-bidding and this one has 'em both. I have won twice....I have loved every loss as much as my wins.

If you know me, you knew this entry was coming. I love playing (or even running) a game of Man O War cause it just LOOKS so damn cool! Im a sucker for a game with great bits (Tikal, TI:3, Roborally, ect..) and MOW has great bits in spades! I (re)learned to paint miniatures for this game and each and every ship mini is a beauty to behold.

<--------- See that pic over there?

That's one of MY ships. Now look closely. That Orc Hulk has a huge Smash Hammer on the bow and a giant Iron Claw to either side. People don't expect to play a naval game where one ship can actually grab another...reel it in and then pulverize it with a huge hammer! That's just not normal. It happens in MOW and it's hilarious when it does. That is just one of the many fun things that can come up in a game. Those that have played...KNOW. (I feel like Grognads here with ALL this emphasizing)

I really enjoy playing and I wish you could ALL come over and let me run a game for you to hook you on this awesome game like I am.

Gipf is a game that I just don't seem to get the right insight in. The others from the series: DVONN, ZERTZ and TAMSK I have not lost yet. YINSH is another one that doesn't come to me natural, but in the end I have now won it once. I still love all of the games of this series and particularly GIPF. If I get the chance I want to play it again and again. Losing it just increases my interest in the game. It works the other way as well. If I win a game almost all of the times, then the challenge is gone and I will mostly want to play it against more experienced players than I am myself.

If I have to lose, this is one of the best. The process (and sometimes confusion) of playing. Of seeing the best laid plans go to waste, makes for a fun game.

Of all the games my wife and I have played, this is the only one (both versions) that I don't win 99% of the time. She actually has a slight edge in head-to-head play. And that makes it all the more enjoyable for me, so I don't mind at all when she whomps me.
