Apologies for spamming, I just feel so enthusiastic.

Tell me if I am right, but I am guessing games can be devided into 2 categories in respect to what we learn from them.

Creative:
1. Pictionary
2. Malarky
3. Would you rather

Analytical
1. Chess
2. Carrom Board
3. Poker

As you can see, they form expertise in different sub-categories. But help in any shape or form is most welcome.

Thanks.

I agree that one can learn creativity and analytical skills from games.

But I don't agree that creativity and analysis are some sort of mutually exclusive dichotomy, or that games can be divided to fall neatly into only 1 of those 2 categories. Many if not most games I find interesting seem to stimulate creative and analytical parts of my brain.

(And there are other skill-related aspects to games, e.g. social, aesthetic, kinetic, etc.)

Where would you categorise Pachisi, Diplomacy or LCR?
