What would you be willing to do if it meant your spouse, significant other, a close friend or family will play games with you?
Weird title, but just wanted to share something quick (and ask a question)!
My wife knows me too well. I'm someone who is TERRIBLE at maintaining my health. Exercising got thrown out the window after my high school/college days, I have horrible posture and have neck pains, and I'm very stubborn and lazy when it comes to visiting the doctor/therapist/taking advantage of insurance benefits. Well.... turns out that all it takes is a board game.
Gaming has been tough lately because Anna (my wife) has been either busy or just wanting to do something less involved (and she doesn't enjoy light games either and favors the midweight ones). I think we've been playing maybe twice a month at most, and #Clank! Legacy: Acquisitions Incorporated has been waiting in the shelf for more than two weeks now too. A couple of days ago, she was trying to encourage me to take better care of my body, and was pushing me to visit a chiropractor, get my eyes checked, and get new glasses (I've been wearing mine for about 3-4 years now). Knowing how I am, she said, "Every time you take care of your body, I'll play a game with you!" She also added that she feels bad that I'm always catering to what she feels like doing whenever we have free time together. How did I react? I'm also terrible at lying and was trying my best to contain the smile and thinking to myself, "That's such a sweet deal! O_O"
I'm a simple man... I just really like sharing something I enjoy with my wife haha (and she likes gaming too, it's just really hard when you're out of battery by the end of the day from taking care of a 2 year old). So really, she's just helping me help myself, but I wanted to ask: What would you be willing to do to get that time with a person who's close to you? Which game would you love to bring out for that time?
