Title: What kind of board gamer are you anyway?
Post by: W8taminute on January 20, 2018, 07:51:14 AM
I've got one simple question to ask my fellow board gamers.  I'm trying to get a feel for how committed we all are to playing a board game to completion no matter how long it would take.  It could be solo play or with friends.  Don't forget to factor in the realities of life schedules and other distractions.  So here is my question:

Q:  Would you ever play a board game to it's final conclusion even if it meant spending over 6 hours to do so in a) a game by yourself or b) a game with 3 other human players?

Do you mean continuous play or broken up? Either way, I would.  :D

Yup.  Do so fairly regularly.

Nowadays, when playing solo (which is 99% of the time), I'm more open to shutting down a game before it's finished. The main reason now is my priorities shift, whether it's work or another game that needs to be looked at. I also find that I get bored easily, especially if a game isn't playing out in an entertaining fashion.

I'm more likely to spend over 6 hours on a single game if I'm doing it solitaire.  Ofc, it's easy to pack it up if you don't feel like continuing so no big deal.

Not so much multi-player.  Aside from getting it all planned, especially if it ends up taking more than one session, it's just easy for gaming fatigue to set in at some point during a long run.  It's very rare, being able to sit and concentrate on one thing for 7+ hours, at least for me.  My thinkmeats gotta move focus regularly.

I would, as long as my wife let me  :P

I'm also figuring out I'm NOT a war board gamer, but I LOVE fantasy board gaming.

You can clip fantasy gaming counters too, you know.

Makes me want to buy a fantasy board game just to clip the counters.
