Board Games Motivation Profile

Supporter
I found this fascinating gamer profile yesterday. I filled out the survey, and I actually think it helped me understand myself better. I'll share my results below. Feel free to check out your gamer profile and share below.

Strategic. I took this survey a while back but it's nice to see how it may have changed haha. I can't even remember what my last one was actually.

I like seeing all of these results that are so even, mine aren't even at all.

I just checked yours and that is pretty skewed haha

To an extent, I do think there are a number of external factors that play into my answers. There were a few questions where it was hard to separate between my personal leanings vs. how I feel about certain types of games because of the people I tend to play with.

Edit: At the same time, that's probably more telling about my personality, so it works.

And, I'm a solo player, so I don't have as many of those concerns.

High Conflict. Sounds about right :) But I only play with family and friends who I am 99% sure will still like me afterwards. Im curious as to how my playing style would change with strangers.

Will definitely encourage my friends to take this

What's a high conflict game that you've loved so far? :D

Hmmmmm #Tammany Hall . The alliances you make aren't worth the toilet paper they are written on. I think it's quite faithful to it it's politics and corruption theme as you sometimes have to ally with the person who just stabbed you in the back in the previous round all in the name of making sure the current mayor doesn't get a second term....by any means necessary and usually it's necessary to be mean !

I do think that is a game I would enjoy.

I like that thought. Also, I love high conflict as well. (I'm so high it's kind of stupid, I think 98% conflict). Lots of lying and misdirection for the win.  I would not mind getting into it with strangers as long as they like the same style.  Maybe we should figure out a time to game together.  At BGA Con when that rolls around?

If you ever find yourself in New York (under better conditions than now) send me a message. We can lie to each other's face and laugh about it afterwards.

Sounds fun.

Sounds fun. I do like high conflict, but, not as big a fan of misdirection. Though, I haven't ever played #Diplomacy and I have been thinking it would be sorta fun to try it online..... So, maybe I would like misdirection.

Yours is definitely more "balanced" than mine.

Wow so if I'm reading that correctly I should not invite you to play a light party game ??

I am pretty open to playing anything but 4 plus hour games don't fit into my life right now because I have young children.

It doesn't appear we'd have a lot of games in common.  Ha!

Supporter8 months ago

That's a cool thing about these lists. They show the reasons behind collections.

Supporter8 months ago

For sure.

It's fascinating how different the profiles are.

This is so fun, and I'm not surprised by the results.

Hurry! It's telling you to get #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) (under niche category) and #Twilight Imperium 4th Edition! (looks like this is a must for you). There are very few games that I can agree with on my recommendations but I do see some promising ones.

Supporter8 months ago

These are both the top two games on my wishlist that I don't think would get played in my group.  Seriously, I would love to play TI.

Supporter8 months ago

It does sound fun.

Supporter8 months ago

Cool! Checking this out right now. 

Supporter8 months ago

Soooo what was the result?

Supporter8 months ago

I was just wondering that.

Supporter8 months ago

Let us know what you get.
