The Cursed. This guy is convinced he has bad luck. He only remembers his bad dice rolls.

The Optimist. Sure he will win.

The Pessimist. Sure he will lose.

?? name ??. The guy who thinks your poor play affects him negatively even when it doesn't. This is the guy that gets pissed that you "took his card" when playing blackjack.

A munchkin is one who plays a non-competive game in an aggressively competitive manner. It is most typical in roleplaying games, but you can see Munchkinry in cooperative boardgames too.

If you would like to know more, check out the wikipedia entry:

"Nunyah" = None of your business


Kidding aside, not me, but I know folks who get pretty irritated when other people try to put them in a "box".

The Blamer, the Whiner, or the Accuser would work for the above mentioned.

Rules lawyer. The one who corrects all of the rules in the middle of the game.

Dungeon Master. Surprised no one has mentioned this one yet.

The Impatient. Are we done yet?

Cult of the New. Have you seen the latest X game. It is amazing!

"Machine"-someone who plays technically perfectly

"Lunatic"-exactly the opposite (though your Loose Cannon is similar)

"Distracted"

"Metagamer"

The Scarecrow - Has no brain. Causes you to lose in-game by playing so idiotically that your seemingly well thought out schemes unravel. Causes you to lose outside the game by sapping you of the will to live after 15th consecutive failure to grasp a rule.

The Tinman - Has no heart. Causes you to lose in-game by ruthlessly kerb-stomping the weakest opponent. Causes you to lose outside the game by relentlessly sapping any fun out of play in pursuit of victory.

The Cowardly Lion - Has no courage. Causes you to lose in-game by playing so timidly that a third party is able to build an unassailable position safe from interference. Causes you to lose outside the game by sapping your victory of meaning- if it wasn't hard-fought how victorious was it?

The moral is never to play with fictional characters.
